SINGAPORE – The public sector will be making sweeping changes to its sustainability and low-carbon efforts – from increasing solar energy use, to slashing water and energy consumption – to start bringing down carbon emissions five years before the rest of the nation.
By 2030, the public sector will raise its use of solar energy to 1.5 gigawatt-peak, equivalent to powering more than 260,000 households a year. This will be three-quarters of the nation’s solar target of 2 gigawatt-peak by 2030.
To achieve this, solar panels will be installed where feasible on all public sector premises.
