Singapore ‘cannot rest on laurels’ with 2GW solar by 2030 goal - minister
Singapore has targeted 2GW of solar by 2030 and 200MW of energy storage beyond 2025, but will continue to rely on natural gas for the next 50 years, according to a government official.   This morning, minister for Trade and Industry Chan Chun Sing spoke about the country’s energy focus over the next five decades at the opening of the Singapore International Energy Week.   The island nation currently obtains 95% of its electricity supply from natural gas delivered through pipelines from neighbouring counties and global supplies of Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) through its ports. While Chun Sing aimed to diversify this gas supply, he also put forward a vision for alternative energy supply.   Every surface counts   Lacking in geothermal, wind and tidal resources, Singapore’s future clean energy plans rest largely on solar power, despite having overcast skies for roughly 80% of the time due to its tropical climate.   The 2GW of PV by 2030 goal - described by Chun Sing as a “stretch target” - would account for the equivalent of 10% of Singapore’s peak daily electricity demand today. It would require collaboration between the public and private sectors as well as breakthroughs in solar module efficiencies and vertical solar installations, given that Singapore lacks available land and relies heavily on rooftop-based solar deployment.   “We will make every surface count,” the minister added. “If tomorrow, the efficiency of the solar panel can also improve to include vertical surfaces, if every one of our high-rise buildings, the walls and even the windows become solar collectors, it will fundamentally change how much solar energy Singapore can generate for our domestic supply.”   The island has grid-connected roughly 3,000 PV installations over the last decade.   “But we cannot rest on our laurels,” said Chun Sing.   The government will continue to support PV through the SolarNova programme and rooftop solar deployment. Meanwhile, the Housing and Development Board (HDB), which has held several successful tenders already, plans to install PV on 50% of HDB rooftops over the coming years.   The nation is currently on track to reach a target of 350MWp deployed by next year.   Storage push   The goal of 200MW of energy storage beyond 2025 comes under a vision of having a network of energy storage solutions across the entire island to manage the stability and resilience of the grid, as well as offering peak shaving services.   Singapore’s difference between peak and trough within the daily cycle can be as much as 30%, requiring extra infrastructure capacity to meet peak demand. The use of storage to balance peak and trough demand, however, could save on such infrastructure costs.   The final elements of the energy vision put forward by Chun Sing included an exploration of a regional power grid, emulating parts of Europe where countries sell excess power to neighbouring countries. He also discussed carbon capture, so-called green hydrogen and research into Zero Energy Buildings.

Singapore designer dives on 500MW Oz solar
Singapore-based designer Keppel Renewable Energy has signed a contract to acquire a 45% risk in Harlin Solar to establish a 500MW greenfield photovoltaic or pv project in Queensland, Australia. The purchase is subject to authorization by Australia's Foreign Investment Review Board. Keppel Renewable Energy will certainly take the lead duty in the development as well as management of the construction and also procedure of the solar farm. This consists of carrying out the grid connection research studies, analyzing the website and modern technology requirements, sourcing for offtakers as well as project monitoring of the engineering, procurement and construction of the solar farm. To increase energy yield, Keppel Renewable Energy means to use bifacial panels along with embrace solitary axis trackers. Construction of the solar farm is projected to begin in 2022 and also be finished in 2023. It will certainly be connected to the National Energy Market (NEM) for public consumption and will certainly likewise give renewable resource with the NEM to services seeking sustainable power options, consisting of Keppel-related firms in Australia. Keppel Renewable Energy taking care of supervisor Chris Ong said: "This project mirrors Keppel's continuing journey to sustain the world's power needs via renewables. " It belongs to Keppel's Vision 2030, that includes a long-term target of expanding the Group's portfolio of renewable resource possessions to 7GW by 2030."

Singapore water agency awards 3MW of floating PV contracts to local firm
Singapore's national water agency PUB has awarded contracts to build two 1.5MW floating solar projects on the Bedok and Lower Seletar Reservoirs to local engineering firm BBR Greentech. The FPV systems, tendered as just 2.5MW overall in May last year, will be deployed on the reservoirs next to Bedok Pump Station and the Lower Seletar Pump Station. Power from the plants will directly supply Bedok Waterworks and the raw water pumping stations at Bedok and Lower Seletar Reservoirs. Combined with an existing 500kW rooftop PV system at the waterworks, the solar power will be able to provide 30% of the installations total energy requirement. Construction is already underway and the systems are expected to be operational by the second quarter of next year.  BBR Greentech has already taken part in the PUB/EDB floating solar PV testbed on Tengeh Reservoir, a world-renowned first-of-its-kind R&D centre, to study the feasibility of floating PV technology in Singapore. Energy minister Chan Chun Sing yesterday announced targets of 2GW of solar by 2030 and 200MW fo energy storage "beyond 2025". While natural gas will remain significant in the mix for another 50 years, solar was outlined as the key alternative energy source. A PUB release said that while the majority of solar PV systems are deployed on land or rooftops, water bodies such as reservoirs, with their large surface areas, can also be used to harness solar energy. Chun Sing also touted the importance of innovations in vertically-installed solar for Singapore to capitalise on its many highrise buildings and lack of land space. PUB has already announced plans to deploy a 50MWp floating PV system on Tengeh Reservoir by 2021. The tender for this is expected to be awarded by end 2019.
