Nuclear power plant in S’pore not likely for next 10-20 years expert – Channel NewsAsia, By Joanne Chan  : 02 November 2010 , SINGAPORE : Singapore is unlikely to have a nuclear power plant for at least the next 10 to 20 years, said one advisor to the local energy sector.

On Monday, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said Singapore needs to diversify its energy sources and is studying the option of nuclear power.”We’re talking about a process here that’s decades, not years, if you think about how long it takes to develop these technologies, and ultimately deploy them.

Schwartz is also a member of the International Advisory Panel on Energy, set up by the Trade and Industry Ministry in 2008 to provide insights on emerging energy trends.

Another option being explored by Singapore is solar power, which has become more cost effective over the years.

Renewable Energy Corporation has chosen Singapore to develop one of the world’s largest integrated solar manufacturing plants.

The S$2.6 billion facility will be officially opened by PM Lee on Wednesday. ..

  1. Yahoo for Singapore to postpone Nukes for Solar. Sounds like the 70’s when young people in America were promoting Solar and No Nukes. I went solar 2 months ago and love it everyday. See my videos and photos of my experience of going green with Solar at dansolar.wordpress.com.
