Singapore joined IEA Association in 2016.
Singapore plays an important and growing role in global energy markets. It is a major global energy trading hub and the world’s third largest oil refining centre. Singapore is also one of the key financial services centres in Asia, and is likely to play an important role in financing energy sector development in Southeast Asia, among other regional players.
Singapore joined the IEA as an Association country in October 2016. Since then, Singapore and the IEA have collaborated on a number of important projects.
With the IEA, Singapore would like to contribute to regional energy policy capacity building by hosting a series training events, designed to cover different key topics each year. The first event in this "Training Hub" series, the Singapore-IEA Energy Efficiency Training Week for Asia-Pacific, was undertaken in July 2017, which brought together over 100 next generation energy efficiency professionals from across the 10 ASEAN member states, Timor-Leste as well as other nations across the Asia-Pacific region to share their experience in planning, implementing and evaluating energy efficiency policies. The aim of the training is to equip junior energy efficiency policy makers with knowledge and skills to be more effective in their roles.
In partnership with the Government of Singapore, the IEA annually participates in Singapore International Energy Week, a key annual global energy policy and energy market forum. In October 2017, IEA co-hosts the Singapore-IEA Forum, which will focus on energy investment challenges and opportunities in Southeast Asia and beyond.
