Ribbon cutting ceremony at the Official Opening
of the SERIS PV Module Development and Testing Laboratories.
We are an international multi-disciplinary team of over a hundred scientists, engineers and architects.
SERIS is globally active but focuses on technologies and services for tropical regions, in particular for Singapore, South- and South-East Asia.
SERIS staff members come from around the world, with roots in 20 countries.
The Singapore Module developed by SERIS provides increased durability and energy output in tropical climates. It features superior moisture resistance and captures more diffuse light.
In March 2012, SERIS was awarded 3 out of 5 successful research grants under the 5th Grant Call of the Clean Energy Research Programme (CERP) by the Energy Innovation Programme Office (EIPO), Singapore.

SERIS is Singapore’s national institute for applied solar energy research.
A leading solar energy research institute in the world, contributing to global sustainable development
To develop industrially relevant materials, components, processes, systems and services in the fields of solar energy conversion and solar and energy-efficient buildings, through education, research and service.
Targeted leadership areas include industrial silicon wafer solar cells, PV modules for the tropics, PV module testing, high-performance PV systems for the tropics, management of the variability of PV for grids with a high solar share, solarisation of Singapore, and PV quality assurance in Asia.
