It has no fossil fuel resources and very little opportunity to use renewables. Singapore is making the best of its situation by focusing on energy efficiency and becoming a hub for technology and research in alternative energy solutions. Many policies and programs have been introduced so that Singapore still contributes to the global effort to mitigate global warming.
