Sembcorp and Bloom Energy to produce low-carbon electricity in Singapore

This is in line with the city-state’s Green Data Centre Roadmap.

Sembcorp Industries and Bloom Energy have announced their collaboration that aims to help Singapore meet its energy demand through the production of low-carbon electricity. 

Under the partnership, Sembcorp will tap Bloom Energy’s proprietary solid oxide fuel cell technology and third-party proven carbon capture technologies.

The collaboration supports Singapore’s recently launched Green Data Centre Roadmap, where one of the goals is to develop sustainable data centres with a greater use of green energy.

“The use of carbon capture technology will support Singapore’s progress towards achieving its net-zero emissions target by 2050. We believe this will serve as a model for the broader region, and the world,” said Bloom Energy founder, Chairman, and CEO KR Sridhar.

Bloom Energy said its fuel cell energy server product, when integrated with carbon capture, will provide low-carbon power to the data centres.

This can possibly deliver green energy in the future, tapping on low-carbon feedstock, it added.

The energy servers can also be deployed as a grid parallel system in conjunction with utility power, mitigating grid constraints, Bloom Energy said. 

Singapore-based Sembcorp has an energy portfolio of 21.2 gigawatts (GW), including 14.4GW of gross renewable energy capacity, across 10 countries.

“Through the collaboration with Bloom Energy, Sembcorp aims to support our customers with low-carbon energy through the deployment of solid oxide energy systems. The demand for green energy is expected to have robust growth, especially in the area of data centres,” said Koh Chiap Khiong, CEO, Singapore & Southeast Asia at Sembcorp.
