SMU Lien Centre of Social Innovation Talks: Solar Power - The Underutilised Alternative

Written By David D'Angelo on Saturday, February 16, 2008 | 2/16/2008

The three big players of alternative energy are solar energy, nuclear power and carbon capture and storage. Solar energy is a very clean, available and renewable resource, and does not harm the environment. It may be the only renewable energy that can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emission.

Solar or photovoltaic cells convert light energy into electricity without any chemical or mechanical action. The conversion process is noiseless, suffers no wear and tear and does not release any pollutants. The amount of solar energy that strikes our surface on an average day is over 2,500 times our daily electricity consumption. Despite this potential, solar power is far behind other renewable in utilization.

Christophe Inglin is Managing Director of Phoenix Solar Pte Ltd, which designs, engineers, supplies and installs solar power systems. Previous to co-founding Phoenix Solar, Christophe was Managing Director at Shell Solar Pte Ltd. He also chairs the Renewable Energy Committee at the Sustainable energy Association of Singapore.
