Singapore: Securing Tomorrow’s Energy
Luan Do, 2 Jan 17
       

Finding a green alternative to fossil fuels can never get this tough for Singapore – we can’t use wind turbines due to our low wind speeds; hydropower plants are not feasible as we don’t have fast-flowing rivers; our calm seas say no to tidal power generation; and our city is so highly populated that the risks outweigh the benefits of nuclear power, just to name a few.

But all hope isn’t lost.

Government Is Determined

In recent years, our sunny island is placing a serious bet on solar power. 

Singapore Energy Statistics 2015 has reported an exponential increase in solar panel installations, with over 600 installed by end 2014. 

 
Notably, it was reported that these 600 installations alone can power all public housing blocks across Novena. This capacity will have a threefold increase next year, and fourteen-fold in the next four to five years, which is currently tantamount to 5% of Singapore’s peak power consumption. Such transformation is thanks to the SolarNova programme spearheaded by the Singapore Economic Development Board.
