SERIS re-launches the National Solar Repository (NSR) 2.0 at the Asia Clean Energy Summit 2014, Singapore
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.
