The Experimental Power Grid Centre (EGPC) was launched in 2009 to lead in creating know-how for intelligent and decentralised power distribution, interconnection and utilisation. EPGC provides the complete value chain in Research, Development & Demonstration for the development of electrical power grids, integrated thermal systems and distributed energy resources. It carries out research in power systems engineering, integration of distributed energy resources and intelligent energy management through advanced modelling, simulation, control and optimization of the systems. Located in Jurong Island, EPGC offers unique experimental platforms and facilities including a 1MW rated experimental power grid which can be used to test and verify new grid concepts in real-time and at actual grid conditions. Its research platforms also support test-bedding of integrated electrical-thermal systems and green building solutions.
EPGC’s mission also includes:
- Developing collaborative R&D with A*STAR Research Institutes, Universities, Industry and Singapore Public agencies to address both industry needs as well as national challenges; and
- Promoting quick adoption and implementation of innovative technologies through experimental test and validation
