Prof Runa HELLWIG, Director of the Solar and Energy Efficient Buildings (SEEB) Cluster at SERIS prsented at the public event "Urban Solar: Beyond Numbers" with a talk titled "Building Integrated Photovoltaics - Overcoming perceived barriers to the adoption of facade integrated renewable energy generation".
SERIS’ scientists, engineers, technicians and administrative staff
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

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

PV Asia Scientific Conference 2015:The PV Asia Scientific Conference, with SERIS CEO Prof Armin ABERLE as the Conference Chairman, is organised by SERIS as part of the Asia Clean Energy Summit (ACES) 2015. It will be held from 27-28 Oct 2015 at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Singapore. To view details on the call for abstracts, please click on the banner below.

 

Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW) 2015: The 8th Annual SIEW 2015 is the foremost platform for top policymakers, energy practitioners and commentators to discuss energy issues, strategies and solutions. SIEW brings together the world’s leading conferences, exhibitions, workshops and networking events from across the energy spectrum of oil & gas, clean and renewable energy, technology and financing - in one week, in one location.
