FOR a tropical island, solar energy should be a no-brainer. And while Singapore is ramping up all efforts towards substantive goals for the harvesting and deployment of solar energy, things are not as clear cut as they might seem. We talk to key players in this green energy sector, in Brunch this Saturday in The […]
SINGAPORE – The electricity tariff for just over half of households in Singapore will rise by 8.6 per cent for the second quarter of this year, compared with the previous quarter, said SP group on Wednesday (March 31). This increase is mainly due to the higher cost of fuel for producing electricity by the power […]
AMAZON has signed an agreement with Singapore solar energy provider Sunseap Group, marking its first renewable energy project in the Republic.
It may be one of the world’s smallest countries, but the island-state of Singapore has a big emissions problem.
