Rent-to-own Solar Panels for Home in Singapore

Singapore has lofty renewable energy and solar capacity targets. However, the country has limited available land and will need to harness residential structures to meet its goals.

MHI First Transition Bond Program – All You Need to Know

Instead of the innovative green financing mechanism they were supposed to be, transition bonds have become the perfect tool for greenwashing. MHI's first transition bonds program can either accelerate the company's net-zero efforts or further distance it from carbon neutrality. The key is in MHI's hands.

The Outlook for Electric Cooking in Asia

Many low-income households in developing Asia continue to use wood as the primary fuel for cooking. Despite the sufficient amount of electricity access, for most middle and high-income households across developed and developing Asian countries, gas and LPG remain the preferred choice. Governments have to stimulate the transition to electric cooking to help households ensure more affordable and cleaner cooking.

Is There a Future For Wind Turbines in Singapore?

Singapore has many road blocks in adopting low carbon energy, one of which is the lack of viability for wind turbines. The country's most efficient renewable energy option is solar energy. However, even solar faces its own challenges – mainly limited land. As an alternative, Singapore is looking toward its neighbouring nations to import low-carbon energy in pursuit of its net-zero goals.

Top 10 Oil And Gas Companies In Singapore [2022]

Oil and gas companies have long been a significant economic pillar in Singapore's economy. The country is the major thoroughfare and hub of fossil fuels in Asia. Most of the largest international fossil fuel companies have offices in Singapore, but there are also several major local companies. How will these businesses fare now that the energy transition is underway?

Vietnam’s National Climate Change Strategy to 2050 and the Plan for Meeting Its COP26 Commitments

Vietnam's latest move is proving that despite the growing needs of its energy-hungry economy, it will actively pursue its net-zero commitment and prioritise climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts – a move that other Asian countries should take note of.

Climate Change in Singapore: Impact, Response and Goals

Singapore's location and geography make it highly susceptible to the impacts of climate change. As a result, the country is implementing a wide array of policies to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for predicted future climate impacts.

Korean and Japanese Companies in Vietnam Are the Main Gas Expansion Advocates

The pressure from Japanese and Korean companies on Vietnam to move in the direction of gas expansion risks tarnishing the country's clean energy progress and locking it into a future of energy instability, high electricity prices and stranded assets.

Vietnam’s Block B Gas Project – the Potential Impact on the Involved Parties

Vietnam has a vast potential for wind and solar power. Yet, the country pushes ahead with plans like the Block B gas project. In a world of highly-unpredictable gas prices where the end goal is net-zero, such a step can prove costly for all parties involved.

Power Crisis in India – Picking up the Pieces After the Heatwave

India’s poorest communities are still reeling from the intense heatwave that recently enveloped the country. At the same time, infrastructure assets are struggling to cope with this climatic upheaval. What could be the way out?

The Philippines’ Climate Policies and the Priorities for the New President

The new president and his administration will have to lead the Philippines through one of the most critical moments in the battle against climate change. Considering how much is at stake for the island country, the new leadership should pursue ambitious climate policies that abandon fossil fuels and prioritise renewables.

Technological Innovation Examples: A Balancing Act for Climate Impact

Technology plays an important role in dictating how the world develops. It has helped humans advance, and it exists across all industries. However, innovations that exploit the environment do come with consequences. We are still looking for a balance between innovation, sustainability and progress. But, time is running out.

Technology and Climate Change: Taking a Look At the Policy Gap

The world is rapidly developing technology to slow climate change. However, global policy to support this shift is slow, leaving local governments responsible. This has led to vast policy differences across regions, making it challenging for the world to meet the required decarbonisation goals.

Steel Producers Are Slow To Reduce Emissions

Steel plays an integral role in our modern world, yet it is also known for its high rate of emissions. One way to curtail these emissions is by implementing electric arc furnaces in production. While some countries have adopted this technology, others continue to develop facilities reliant on heavy-emitting technologies. Experts believe the steel industry is falling behind and may hinder the world from reaching net-zero by 2050.
