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.

Music and the Environment: How are Streaming Companies Impacting the Climate?

The link between music and the environment is in the spotlight due to the growing popularity of music streaming and data centres' rising GHG emissions. Music streaming companies need to engage with innovation and ensure that sustainable operations don’t come at the expense of listeners.

Are Exxon’s Asian Carbon Capture Intentions Genuine?

Exxon's carbon capture plans are grand. They hinge on developing an extensive CCS network centred in Singapore, connecting with the surrounding countries. Ultimately, this will facilitate the adoption of carbon capture in Southeast Asia and place Exxon at the centre of this growing market.

Does Wind Energy Have A Place In Singapore?

Singapore has grand plans for its renewable energy transition. This will primarily focus on domestic solar generation and the importation of renewable energy from neighbouring countries. Additionally, wind energy will likely have a small role to play. As low wind speed turbine technology improves, wind energy will become more viable for local generation.

Inside Asia’s Floating Solar Panels Boom

Floating solar farms provide a way for solar adoption in areas without adequate land – often in lakes and the ocean. When combined with existing hydroelectric dams, floating solar continues to become more enticing. The technology will likely play a major role in many Asian countries reaching their net-zero targets over the next several decades.

Top Energy Companies In Singapore 2022
