Solar Energy System Cluster

The Solar Energy System (SES) Cluster focuses on making solar power a cost-effective and trusted source of electricity. The SES activities have a wide variety and span from remote monitoring to novel PV system deployments such as Floating Solar and forecasting of irradiance for better grid integration management. The cluster also addresses the specific challenges when deploying solar technologies in urban environments like Singapore and other megacities. The SES Cluster is involved in two SERIS flagship projects (BIPV, Floating Solar) and drives four of SERIS’ seven targeted leadership areas: Highperformance PV systems for the tropics, variability management for PV grid integration, solarisation of Singapore / “Urban Solar” initiatives and PV quality assurance.
