The sunny island nation is harnessing the power of the sun to charge the development of its clean energy industry. In the run up to the Asia Clean Energy Summit in October 2017, Eco-Business looks back at the evolution of Singapore’s solar sector over the last decade.

These innovations form the centrepiece of the island nation’s ongoing push to develop solar technologies suited for cities like Singapore, known as “urban solar”.
The 720 square kilometres city-state has the third-highest population density in the world.
