Electricity for SG from VN reminded me of this (blurb generated from AI answer):

The project to bring electricity subsea to Singapore from Australia is called the Australia-Asia Power Link (AAPowerLink). It is a proposed electricity infrastructure project that is planned to include the world's largest solar plant, the world's largest battery, and the world's longest submarine power cable.

The project is being developed by Sun Cable, a consortium led by Australian tech billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes. The project aims to supply electricity to Darwin by 2030 (900 megawatts initially), and to Singapore a few years thereafter. Eventually the solar farm would produce 6 gigawatts of energy.

The undersea cable would be 4,200 kilometers (2,610 miles) long and would run from Darwin, Australia, to Singapore. It would be the longest submarine power cable in the world.

The project is still in the early stages of development, but it has already received significant support from governments and investors. Sun Cable has raised over A$1 billion in funding for the project, and the Australian and Singaporean governments have both pledged their support.
