A lack of land in Singapore is hurting its efforts to become more energy-independent. Sources like wind and hydropower have been largely ruled out. And the city-state is running out of room to install solar panels, so it’s now turning to floating solar farms as a solution. CGTN’s Miro Lu has more.
Total, through its wholly-owned affiliate Total Solar Distributed Generation (DG), is now operating the solar power system to supply clean energy to the Singapore LNG Terminal, operated by Singapore LNG Corporation (SLNG).
Singapore recently unveiled its ambitious Green Plan 2030, in which it aims to quadruple its solar energy deployment by 2025 using measures including covering the rooftops of housing blocks with solar panels. By 2030, solar energy will be five times that of today, capable of powering over 350,000 households a year. But the land-scarce country […]
Singapore: Last week, at an event coinciding with Earth Day (April 22), US President Joe Biden hosted a climate conference with other world leaders, urging them to cooperate in the global effort to tackle the climate crisis. At the Leaders’ Summit on Climate, he committed his country to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least […]
Singapore is betting on floating solar farms and vertical panels to increase its clean-energy supplies and cut carbon emissions, a model that could work in other densely populated cities, urban experts said.
[SINGAPORE] The Republic may be small and without access to resources, but it will strive to achieve its climate targets through innovation, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Friday (April 23).
The fight against climate change is a race against time. Countries and businesses aim to transform their economies to meet carbon reduction goals, but what if the world cannot innovate its way out of the climate crisis?
SINGAPORE: Shell is working with several partners to trial the use of hydrogen fuel cells for ships in a first-of-its-kind study for the energy firm and in Singapore. The success of the trial will “help pave the way for cleaner, hydrogen-powered shipping”, said Shell in a press release, adding that hydrogen with fuel cells may […]
ISWITCH Energy has signed an agreement with Finnish technology company, PlugIT, to acquire up to 12 of the latter’s existing electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in Singapore. Under the terms of the deal, the green electricity retailer will also offer EV charger installation services to its existing portfolio of over 50 management corporation strata titles, […]
Singapore is giving a push towards sustainable energy, with floating solar farms. Being a densely populated country, they have limited land area. Innovative methods to meet the requirements in renewable energy production are much needed. The other sustainable energy production like wind, hydro, and biomass were ruled out as they need land. Furthermore, floating solar […]
