Technology giant Apple is to open its first retail store in Singapore, which will also be south-east Asia's first to be powered solely by solar energy, officials have said.

Solar energy developer Sunseap Group said it will provide the store with renewable energy by harnessing its systems set up across 800 of the city's rooftops from January next year.

Apple, however, did not reveal the store's location in Singapore or the opening date, likely to be in 2016. It also did not confirm that the store would be run by solar energy, but directed media queries to the Sunseap statement.

A Singapore government official also confirmed the venture.
