Sandia National Laboratories’ Energy Storage Projects team within the Stationary Energy Storage Program is working with the government of Singapore’s Energy Market Authority (EMA) to help set up Singapore’s first grid energy storage test-bed. This will lead to the selection and development of three energy storage test-beds at existing electrical substations. Sandia will help develop standards and guidelines for grid integration and fire safety, assess the economic case for energy storage systems, offer guidance on the policy and regulatory frameworks, and provide periodic reports to EMA on the performance of the test systems. Sandia is working with EMA under a four-year Cooperative Research and Development Agreement sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Electricity’s Stationary Energy Storage Program managed by Dr. Imre Gyuk.
