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.

Home Wind Turbines – All You Need To Know

Home wind turbines have historically seen low adoption rates, but this is changing. They are finding a place as part of local microgrids and larger energy systems. Combined with other energy sources and battery storage systems, they are an essential piece of renewable energy technology.

Wind Energy: Advantages and Disadvantages

Wind energy is one of the leading renewable energy technologies in the world. Not only does it have substantially lower environmental impacts than fossil fuels, but it has significant economic benefits. The disadvantages of wind energy typically relate to high up-front costs and intermittency, which are the same concerns as renewable energy in general.

How Do Wind Turbines Work?

Wind turbines capture the kinetic energy in the wind, transfer it into mechanical energy and finally turn the mechanical energy into electricity. This energy transfer, and wind turbines themselves, have seen a dramatic increase in efficiency over the last several decades. This is leading to increasing rates of adoption with new designs and broader applications.

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.

Best Renewable Resource Examples in Energy

What are the best renewable resource examples for energy sources? Wind, solar and hydropower are some of the most common and cleanest.

Wind Energy in South Korea – Opportunities and Challenges

The wind energy sector can become the difference that gives South Korea's renewable energy progress that much-needed boost. The country's vast potential for offshore wind is already starting to attract some of the leading developers in the industry. Judging by the first signs, South Korea's future promises to be "windy."

Wind and Solar Power Hit a Record Tenth of Global Electricity in 2021

2021 saw some of the fastest growth rates ever for wind and solar. Simultaneously, coal remained a significant energy source in Asia and saw increased use in several countries. To reach the Paris Agreement's goals, renewables must continue to grow.

What the 2021 China Wind Power Boom Means for the World

China is a central actor for the world’s energy and climate future. As such, the latest figures about the rapid growth of the new solar and wind power capacity in the country in 2021 send a positive signal for the world's net-zero journey.

COP26: How Lack of Climate Finance Derails Coal Phase-out Agenda

The chaos around the last-minute change in the coal declaration by India, China and South Africa at COP26 has certainly made it harder to reach the 1.5-degree target. At the Glasgow UN climate summit, nations pledged to phase-out coal, reduce methane, end deforestation and support the energy transition, etc. With the USD 100 billion pledge of climate finance still not being fulfilled, small and developing countries called for climate justice. Many nations now plan to revisit their commitment by the end of 2022.
