Solar energy is the most promising renewable energy source for Singapore. Being situated near the equator, Singapore receives an average annual solar irradiance of 1,580kWh/m2. This is about 50% more than temperate countries. Solar is also an indigenous source of energy which will enhance Singapore’s energy security.

However, solar is largely intermittent as it is dependent on weather conditions such as the amount of sunlight and cloud cover. With a national ambition of at least 2 Gigawatt-peak (GWp) of solar deployment by 2030, EMA is focusing on managing solar intermittency to avoid energy imbalance which results in grid instability.
