The Low-Carbon Energy Research Funding Initiative

Last updated: 15 February 2024

The Low-Carbon Energy Research (LCER) Funding Initiative (FI) is a multi-agency initiative that aims to develop low-carbon energy technologies in hydrogen and carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS), to support the decarbonisation of the power and industry sectors. 

The first grant call was issued in 2021 and focused on developing low and medium technology readiness level (TRL) technologies (i.e. low: TRL 1-3, medium: TRL 4-6). Singapore selected 12 research, development and demonstration projects as part of the first call, totalling SGD 55 million.

The second grant call was launched in 2023 for funding to commence from April 2024 onwards. A further $129 million is set aside for Phase 2, mainly focusing on hydrogen research.
