EMA sends out first request for proposal for electricity imports

The deadline for submission of proposals is on 1 April 2022.

The Energy Market Authority (EMA) announced the issuance of the first Requests for Proposal (RFP) to appoint electricity importers for its plans to import up to 4 gigawatts (GW) of electricity by 2035.

Overall, this would take up around 30% of the country’s electricity supply. 

Over 1.2GW of low-carbon electricity is expected to be covered by this RPF by 2027. Another RFP, meanwhile, is expected to be issued in the second quarter of 2022 and targets a 2035 effectivity date. 

Parties interested in this should submit their proposals by 1 April 2022, 3:00 p.m., and should include the proposed generation and interconnector design.

Other factors importers have to take note of is supply reliability, credibility, track record, cost-competitiveness, and ability to supply and manage the carbon output of their generation supply.

Proposals reliant on coal-fired generator technology will not be accepted.
