Total Energy Consumption
Total energy consumption per capita is about 5.9 toe (2018), including 8 900 kWh of electricity in 2018.
Oil has a dominant share in the country's total energy consumption, with 64% in 2018. However, its share has fallen due to the increased demand for gas (from 6% in 2000 to 32% in 2018). Biomass and coal have shares of 2% and 1%, respectively.

Crude Oil Production
In spite of the absence of oil resources, Singapore is a major oil hub in Asia. It is the world's third largest oil products trading place. Thanks to its geographical position, at the extremity of the Strait of Malacca and on the shipping routes connecting the Middle Eastern producing countries to the Southeast Asian importing countries, Singapore is a key crossing point for oil trade. Moreover, the country built an artificial island, Jurong Island, entirely dedicated to the oil industry. Singapore is a big refining centre, with a capacity of 1.5 mb/d.

Renewable in % Electricity Production
In October 2019, the government announced a target of 2 GW of rooftop solar PV by 2030. Development would be supported through the SolarNova programme. The Housing and Development Board (HDB) plans to install PV panels on half of its rooftops in the coming years. The city state also plans to double the floating solar capacity to 160 MW and to add 200 MW of energy storage system (ESS) by 2025.
