Congratulations to the PhD and Masters Graduates from SERIS for 2015!
Congratulations to the PhD Graduates from SERIS for 2015!
Our R&D focus is on industrially relevant materials, components, processes, systems and services for (i) photovoltaic electricity generation and (ii) solar and energy efficient buildings.
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.
At SERIS, we offer a “one-stop shop” for PV stakeholders with in-house R&D labs, characterisation and testing, which provide a multi-disciplinary approach to optimise customer products.
We also collaborate closely with universities, research organisations, government agencies and industry, both locally and globally.

 

SERIS is Singapore’s national institute for applied solar energy research.

 

VISION

A leading solar energy research institute in the world, contributing to global sustainable development

MISSION STATEMENT

To develop industrially relevant materials, components, processes, systems and services in the fields of solar energy conversion and solar and energy-efficient buildings.

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.

 

Upcoming Events

 

PVSEC-26, 24-28 Oct 2016, Singapore
SERIS will be hosting the 26th edition of the International Photovoltaic Science and Engineering Conference ("PVSEC-26") in Singapore, from 24 to 28 October 2016. The Conference is Chaired by Prof Armin ABERLE, CEO of SERIS. The conference programme encompasses the full range of PV topics, including the fabrication, characterisation and simulation of PV materials, cells, modules and systems, the testbed-ding and reliability of PV systems, as well as smart grids, to name a few. To submit an abstract to the Conference, please click on the banner below.

 

 

Asian Utility Week, 31 May - 1 June 2016, Bangkok, Thailand
The 17th annual Asian Utility Week 2016 will be held at the Centara Ground, Bangkok Convention Centre on 31 May to 1 June 2016. It attracts 2500-3000 utility technology specialists from across Asia and the world. It features 200 speakers and 150 expo stands across a range of topics that cover smart metering/grids, customer experience/engagement, enterprise analytics, and how to integrate distributed generation assets. The key themes of this event are unique for Asian utility expos - digital transformation with a customer focus. The event mirrors the development of technology and management strategies in the advanced Western markets which have experienced a deregulated marketplace influenced by disruptive exponential technologies. Asian utilities come to learn about the future of utility technology and showcase their own unique solutions.
