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
