SINGAPORE (Reuters) -Singapore’s Energy Market Authority said on Friday it has issued a request for proposals to appoint electricity importers to import and sell around 1.2 gigawatts (GW) of low-carbon electricity, beginning by 2027.

In October, the city-state announced plans to import up to 4 GW of low-carbon electricity by 2035, representing about 30% of its total supply by then, to diversify supply and boost energy security.
