Energy Market Authority of Singapore Act (Chapter 92B)

Legislative
Law
Passed in 2001
This Act establishes the Energy Market Authority (EMA) of Singapore. It states that the function and duty of the EMA is to create a market framework in respect of the supply of electricity or gas which promotes and maintains fair and efficient market conduct and effective competition or, in the absence of a competitive market, which prevents the misuse of monopoly or market power.

As well as promoting the development of the gas and electricity industries, and advising the government on national needs, policies and strategies relating to energy utilities, a key role of the EMA is to promote the efficient use of energy in Singapore (with specific provisions for gas and electricity detailed in the Gas Act and the Electricity Act respectively). The remainder of the Act specifies technical provisions, such as the transfer of property, assets, liabilities and employees, as well as the constitution of the EMA.

Along with the Gas Act, Electricity Act and the Public Utilities Act, the Energy Market Authority of Singapore Act was passed to restructure and liberalise the energy sector.
