Between 4 September 2023 and 8 December 2023, interested parties may respond to the Request for Proposal issued by the Energy Market Authority (“EMA”) to conduct a Singapore-wide non-invasive geophysical study to assess Singapore’s deep geothermal resource potential for the purpose of power generation. Additional data from the study is expected help assess geothermal energy as a potential source of renewable energy and identify suitable locations for the potential deployment of geothermal power plants in Singapore. The data and information will also be useful in assessing the potential for subsurface geologic carbon sequestration in Singapore.

By way of background, EMA is exploring indigenous energy options other than solar to further diversify and decarbonise Singapore’s energy sources.
