The Government of Singapore has allocated S$49 million to finance low-carbon energy research. It will also finance test-bedding efforts in the use and storage of hydrogen and carbon capture.
International Energy Week- Singapore
Chan Chun Sing, Minister of Trade and Industry, made his opening remarks at the Singapore International Energy Week on Monday (Oct 26), gave some statements. It included “Hydrogen has enormous potential as yet another cleaner source of energy, if not a cleaner form of energy.”
“We’ll be looking to see if we can merge the use of hydrogen with our current LNG (liquified natural gas) mix to provide Singapore with an even cleaner energy mix.”
“On Monday, Singapore signed a memorandum of understanding with Australia to see if they can “drive low-carbon solutions,”. It also included hydrogen, carbon capture and storage solutions and trade in renewable energy, Mr. Chan said.
In a separate media release, the Agency for Science , Technology and Research, the Economic Development Board (EDB), the Energy Market Authority (EMA), the National Secretariat for Climate Change (NCCS) and the National Research Foundation (NRF) are participating in the Low Carbon Energy Research Funding Initiative, the agencies said.
The EDB and EMA would “co-drive” the initiative to ensure that the projects are applicable to the industrial and power sectors. With A*STAR on behalf of the Government as the implementing agency the project will take place, the release said.
Research projects may include technologies that allow the efficient capture of carbon dioxide (CO2). It should capture CO2 from low-concentration industrial and energy emission sources. It also includes the conversion of CO2 into useful products such as building materials, recycled sand and synthetic fuel.
Emerging technology test beds, such as combining low-carbon hydrogen with natural gas in combined cycle gas turbines. It would minimise carbon emissions from the production of electricity. These test beds may provide insights into the implementation of low carbon technologies and encourage potential deployment.
General Knowledge About Carbon Emission In Singapore
The expenses and difficulties towards a net-zero way are significant and overwhelming, both regarding time, assets and capital.
Notwithstanding, Singapore must graph this way in the near future. There will likewise be monstrous advantages for atmosphere transformation in Singapore with the change towards a greener economy.
The objective of developing and retrofitting “greener” structures with super-low-energy use will likewise cool Singapore locally by lessening the island’s metropolitan heat effect.
Essentially, the decrease of waste warmth outflows from the vehicle area through electric vehicles. It will likewise altogether help in cooling Singapore. It will just help in decreasing air contamination to walkers beginning from vehicular consuming of petroleum and diesel.
The neighborhood execution and improvement of, extraordinary failure carbon innovations by the private area could be marketed and sent out to provincial urban areas, who will be searching for fruitful metropolitan atmosphere relief models or in the structure and transport area.
An effective change to a decoupled, low-carbon economy will empower the up and coming age of Singaporeans with supportable work and move away from dusk businesses, for example, those zeroing in on petroleum derivative extraction.
Finally, interests in moderation and decarbonisation will be more affordable today than in a future. It is because the atmosphere effects and risks become more articulated, with higher human and financial expenses emerging from inaction.
