The energy sector has come a long way over the last 50 years and now faces new challenges from climate change. As part of the whole-of-nation movement towards greater sustainability, our energy future will be guided by these four energy supply switches, while promoting energy efficiency to reduce demand.
Solar energy is one of Singapore's most promising renewable energy sources. Our aim is to deploy at least 2 gigawatt-peak (GWp) of installed capacity by 2030, which can generate enough energy to meet the annual electricity needs of around 350,000 households.
Regional Power Grids
To overcome our land constraints, we are connecting to regional power grids to access low-carbon electricity beyond our borders. We plan to import a capacity of up to 4 gigawatts (GW) of electricity by 2035. This will make up about 30% of our projected electricity supply then.
To further reduce Singapore's carbon footprint, we are studying emerging technologies such as hydrogen, ammonia, geothermal energy, and carbon capture, utilisation & storage.
Natural gas is our main fuel for generating electricity. We import natural gas from Malaysia and Indonesia through piped networks, and also in a liquefied state from around the world via the Singapore LNG Terminal.
Creating a more sustainable energy future also means changing the way we use energy.
