Sri Lanka may become a supplier of renewable energy to Singapore soon, State Minister of Solar Power, Wind and Hydro Power Generation Duminda Dissanayake told Parliament yesterday.

“We have already embarked on a dialogue with Singapore to set up offshore renewable power plants. Singapore has planned to convert into renewable energy and wants Sri Lanka to play a part in it,” the State Minister said in response to a question raised by SJB MP Dr Harsha de Silva who inquired about exporting power to India.

“We are currently in a dialogue with Singapore to play a role in supplying renewable energy to Singapore. Sri Lanka has potential to start up offshore renewable energy projects generating 10,000 MW,” the State Minister said.

“Both government and opposition should come together to resolve the energy crisis.(YOHAN PERERA AND AJITH SIRIWARDANA)

    If you can just fulfill local energy demand we are more than happy. Before boasting about becoming an international energy supplier, be a local hero at least

    April 01, 2021 has passed and April 2022 a bit way off. This guy is off his nut to make such stupid statements. Even if we can build a 10GW off short solar power plant, how are we going to send it to Singapore?

    Charity begins at home! All Gas coming from the orifice.

    Expand installation of solar power to residences and businesses so that people will be self sufficient instead of trying to be a supplier to Singapore. Sin is in a position to supply us. So get on with expansion without talking about unknown subjects.

    VJ Tuesday, 30 November 2021 08:43 AM

    Are we self sufficient in renewable energy?
