Riding the Solar Wave – Opportunities for Solar Adoption and its Benefits

Solar Panels Singapore

In early 2016, Singapore signed the Paris Agreement – a historic agreement to combat climate change – alongside 173 other countries. Singapore has pledged to reduce its emissions intensity by 36% from 2005 levels by 2030, and stabilise its greenhouse gas emissions with the aim of peaking around 2030. Adopting renewable energy is one of the key measures in Singapore’s mitigation plan. 

Solar energy is the most abundant renewable energy source in Singapore. Given the declining cost of solar photovoltaic systems, many businesses are now turning to solar energy to power their operations. Innovative models such as solar leasing and off-site purchase agreements have also unlocked new opportunities for solar energy adoption in Singapore. Nevertheless, some questions still plague decision makers in organisations: 
• How long will it take to pay off our system? 
• Will the costs of installation and maintenance outweigh the benefits? 
• How do we convince our management that adopting solar energy makes financial sense? 
• What is the most suitable contracting model for our organisation? 

Join us for the first of our monthly networking series, held in partnership with the National Environment Agency (NEA), to have all these questions answered. You will also learn from the experiences of early solar adopters and most importantly, understand how adopting solar energy is beneficial for your business.
