The Power Sector is responsible for the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity and gas to businesses and homes. Some exciting job opportunities include power generation operations, network development and energy trading.
Upcoming major initiatives include the building of Singapore’s second Liquefied Natural Gas terminal, and the deployment of innovative smart grid technologies. These developments, coupled with ageing demographics, have increased demand for fresh talent in a stable sector that is resilient against economic conditions.
The sector is also attractive from the perspective of professional growth and development, offering a range of technical and functional upgrade courses, team-building and leadership development programmes.
Besides core technical/engineering skills, the power sector requires people in varied functions such as trading and project management.
- The first supply of electricity in Singapore can be traced back to 1906, when the Mackenzie Road Power Station came into operation.
- Built in 1927 by the British, St James Power Station first served as a coal-fired power station, supplying electricity to shipyards, industries and residences nearby. It was also Singapore’s first municipal power station.
