Singapore Aerospace Industry Solar Adoption Report 2021

This is the inaugural report on solar energy adoption by the aerospace industry in Singapore. The report is a collaborative effort between the Association of Aerospace Industries (Singapore) (AAIS) and JTC Corporation (JTC).

The objectives are to communicate the industry’s sustainability efforts to a wider audience, engage current and prospective parties, and share about the benefits in implementing solar energy. This way, companies from all industries can learn and be ready in greening their energy use.

FOREWORD

As leading industry partners, AAIS and JTC aim to understand the aerospace industry’s sustainability goals and facilitate organisations in meeting them.

WHY SOLAR?

Solar is by far the most practical and promising clean energy in the Singapore context. Solar energy is not only good for the environment but also cost-effective.

REPORT METHODOLOGY

We conducted a survey of Singapore aerospace companies that have deployed, are deploying or plan to deploy solar systems in their facilities.

KEY FINDINGS

Findings of the study helps us build an important baseline inventory, with which we can monitor the progress of the industry’s solar adoption in the coming years.

QUALITATIVE INSIGHTS

This section delves into the trends in the deployment of solar, highlights the motivations, common adoption models, and challenges for the aerospace industry.

DRIVING SOLAR ADOPTION

Find out about JTC’s initiatives to drive renewable energy via solar installations on vacant land and unutilised rooftops.

Addressing climate change, reducing energy costs and supporting a national goal are all compelling reasons for the aerospace sector to harness solar energy. An added bonus is that the solar marketplace has matured, hence companies interested to deploy solar energy in their facilities need not buy the panels and incur a substantial expenditure upfront. Instead, they can get started by tapping on solar leasing and other innovative programmes offered by a range of service providers.
