Singapore has a tropical rain forest climate and enjoys a uniform climate throughout the year. Due to its close proximity to the equator, Singapore does not experience any major variations in the weather and temperature, except for mild fluctuations. The main features of its climate are uniform temperature and pressure, high humidity and abundant rainfall throughout the year.
The geographical location and the closeness to the sea greatly influence the climatic conditions of Singapore. Due to the uniform weather, Singapore welcomes tourists almost throughout the year and there are a range of hotels in Singapore catering to every type of visitor, offering the best of hotel deals.
Singapore has basically two seasons – the summer season and the monsoon season. The average temperature in Singapore ranges between 22° Celsius to 34° Celsius (71.6°F to 93.2°F), with the minimum temperature ranging between 22° Celsius to 26° Celsius and the maximum temperature ranging between 31° Celsius to 34° Celsius. The average relative humidity is around 90 percent in the morning and 60 percent during the daytime. However, during the prolonged rainy season, the humidity goes up to 100 percent. The average annual rainfall is around 2,370 mm.
Though the climate here is uniform almost throughout the year, the months of May and June are the hottest, and are considered the main summer months. The weather remains bright and sunny with light winds, and the daytime temperatures soar. During this time the weather is comparatively drier than the monsoon months, and the humidity is comparatively less.
Singapore experiences monsoons twice a year. The northeast monsoon occurs during the months of December to early March, and is brought on by the northeast winds. During this time, the weather remains cloudy with frequent afternoon showers. Prolonged rainfalls lasting for one to three days at a stretch are common during this time. November and December are the wettest months in Singapore. Afternoon thunderstorms are a frequent occurrence in Singapore, and April sees the maximum thunderstorms.
Singapore welcomes the monsoon a second time during the months of June to September. This is the southwest monsoon season brought on by the southern winds, and this period is characterized by scattered showers during the late mornings and early afternoons. The western side of Singapore experiences greater rainfall than the eastern part, owing to a rain shadow effect.
There is no distinct winter months in Singapore though the monsoon months are cooler than the summer months.
Due to its weather which remains almost constant throughout the year, there is no specific season for tourists to visit Singapore. In fact, tourists throng the place during all the months, though the drier months are best to move around and explore the place. Accommodation is not a problem in Singapore, and hotels offer services taking into account the different types of tourists who visit. One can book Singapore hotels easily from across the world, be it online or though travel agents or airlines.

London, Southwark (PRWEB UK) 20 September 2014
Right across Europe, existing power stations are being converted to be able to use waste as a fuel instead of coal. In the UK around a fifth of power stations are likely to close by 2020. The government is coming under increasing pressure not just to keep energy prices low, but to keep the lights on. EfW won’t plug the gap as a whole, but it has a major role to play.
(Recycling & Waste World, Has energy from waste a role to play in the circular economy?, 2014)
SMi Group Speaks to Pal Mikkelsen, CEO, EGE (Waste to Energy Agency) regarding the challenges and regulations facing the Energy from Waste sector.
What are the main challenges facing the Energy from Waste sector in the EU?
“Low profitability due to poorly functioning markets [...] insufficient regulation and government control means that disposal continues to be the least expensive option for many EU countries [...] It is difficult to communicate and gain acceptance for the idea that waste energy is entirely renewable in the sense that it cannot be used elsewhere, and that this is the best way to utilise waste resources.”
How do you think new regulations will affect Energy from Waste sector?
“New regulations and increased focus on recycled material will reduce the total amount of waste for treatment, but shifting waste away from disposal will improve conditions for energy recovery.”
What are the main challenges for funding EfW projects?
“Long-term profit in a poorly functioning waste market, with an unstable energy marked. [...] Technologies (recycling, sorting, biological, Energy from Waste) are competing when they should be cooperating. The various areas within Energy from Waste are also in competition (combustion grates, gasification, plasma). This impedes the development of the market and makes it more ambiguous for politicians and for capital.”
