SINGAPORE: A new type of floating solar panel system that is said to be the first of its kind in Singapore will be piloted on Jurong Island. Compared to conventional solar panel systems used in calmer water bodies such as reservoirs, the new system is designed to withstand stronger waves and rough sea conditions so […]
One of the world’s largest solar panel manufacturers has shifted all electricity consumption for its factory in Malaysia to renewables. In September 2019 JinkoSolar signed on to the RE100 initiative, a global initiative bringing together major companies committed to 100% renewable electricity. Jinko’s RE100 pledge is to power all its operations with 100% renewable electricity by […]
Singapore team develops new technology that upcycles old, expired solar panels into heat-harvesting electricity materials
A team of scientists from the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) has developed technology that can turn old solar panels into a new high-performance energy-harvesting thermoelectric material, which harvests heat and converts it into electricity.
Opportunity for Singapore to accelerate the energy transition as the flywheel of change and innovation
Singapore will be an important “flywheel of change and innovation” to accelerate the energy transition, moving faster than others to reach net zero far ahead of 2050 by maturing key technologies and fuels to spur decarbonization.
By 2023, Pulau Ubin’s main village could have up to 90 per cent of its energy needs powered by the sun, thanks to an upgraded power grid.
PT Indonesia Power has begun building a 3.5 megawatt (MW) solar power plant project in Suana Village, Nusa Penida District, Klungkung. The project is being built with the aim of increasing electricity capacity in Nusa Penida. The construction of the solar power plant is targeted for completion in October 2022.
SOLAR Philippines Power Project Holdings, Inc. has offered its proposed 10 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy development to off-takers or buyers, its listed unit said on Monday. In a disclosure, Solar Philippines Nueva Ecija Corp. (SPNEC) said its parent firm’s submitted offers “to substantially contract” are awaiting the approval of would-be off-takers and regulators.
Chinese solar modules supplier Longi Green Energy Technology Co Ltd (SHA:601012), or Longi Solar, has delivered modules for a 19.2-MWp photovoltaic (PV) plant located close to Singapore’s Changi Airport.
Although there is less sunshine in northern Vietnam than in other regions, some Hanoi residents are still happy with the electricity their rooftop solar power systems produce. Statistics from the Vietnam Energy Association showed the north enjoys only 1,500-1,700 hours of sunshine a year compared to 2,000-2,600 hours in the central and southern regions.
The idea for Large Scale Solar (LSS) power plants is a way for Malaysia, blessed with sufficient sunlight, to quickly reach its renewable energy (RE) targets.
