Transition to renewable energy

Pushing ahead with solar panel deployment

Solar energy is one of the key switches in Singapore’s Energy Story to secure a cleaner, affordable and more reliable energy future. Despite the disruption from COVID-19, Singapore achieved its 2020 solar deployment target of 350 megawatt-peak (MWp) in the first quarter of the year, and we remain committed to achieving our next solar target of at least 2 gigawatt-peak (GWp) by 2030.

Singapore has been moving ahead with the deployment of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels in 2020. Construction of the 60 MWp floating solar photovoltaic (PV) system on Tengeh Reservoir commenced in August 2020. The deployment of floating solar modules helps to overcome our land constraints while facilitating greater deployment of solar PV systems. Once the project begins full operations in 2021, the power generated will be sufficient to power our local water treatment plants. This allows Singapore to integrate green technology with water treatment and enhance our energy resilience as we emerge from COVID-19.

We have also capitalised on our COVID-19 response measures to extend solar PV deployment. At the new community recovery facility outside Changi Exhibition Centre, about 1,130 solar panels provides 20 per cent of the recovery facility’s projected energy consumption. The system includes a roof array mounted on two temporary “solar tents”, which are the first of their kind.
