Singapore has commenced its first renewable energy import via a regional multilateral power trade agreement signed by Keppel Electric and Laos state-owned electricity enterprise Électricité Du Laos (EdL).

Keppel Electric is a subsidiary of Keppel Infrastructure, which is, in turn, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Keppel Corp.

This agreement imports up to 100 megawatts (MW) of renewable hydropower from Laos to Singapore - via Thailand and Malaysia - using existing interconnections, is also the first multilateral cross-border electricity trade involving four ASEAN countries.
