Singapore received 20 proposals to supply it with low-carbon electricity from overseas in what could be a test case for the ability of small countries to access green power.

The Energy Market Authority got bids for supply from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Laos in response to a tender that sought 1.2 gigawatts of lower-carbon electricity imports starting in 2027, it said in an emailed response to questions. The types of power include solar, wind, geothermal and hydro, it said.
