Energy plays an undeniably instrumental role in every aspect of our daily lives, be it at home, in school or in the industry. We go behind the scenes and speak to two EMA scholars, who possess innovative ideas and a passion to shape the future of Singapore’s energy landscape.

Despite their youthful appearance, 19-year-old Ren Kejia and 21-year-old Eng Zi Guang possess ambitions that would put many of their older peers to shame. With a scholarship from the Energy Market Authority (EMA) in their bags and a spring in their step, these two scholars hope to change the energy landscape in Singapore, one light bulb at a time.
Congratulations on obtaining the scholarship. What are your plans now?
Kejia: I’m majoring in Economics at the University of Chicago. With the university’s penchant for academic diversity and rigour, I hope to be able to better understand the intricate linkages of economics to other fields, such as business and politics.
