95% of Singapore's electricity comes from burning natural gas. They do not have many alternatives. Not sure if you have heard, but Singapore is a small island. No room for sprawling solar or wind farms. A few rooftop solar panels on residential buildings. That is about it.

But what if you were to pipe in the electricity from overseas?

The Australia-ASEAN Power Link is a mega-project looking to bring renewable solar energy from Australia all the way to Singapore. It is also referred to as the "Sun Cable", after the Singaporean company developing the project.

In this video, I want to dive into how this company intends to bring clean solar power all the way to the Lion City.
