Solar Energy System Cluster

The Solar Energy System 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 optimising PV systems design and forecasting of irradiance for better grid integration management. The cluster drives four out of the seven “targeted leadership” areas of SERIS, which are as follows:

  • High-performance PV systems for the tropics
  • Management of the variability of PV for grids with a high solar share
  • Solarisation of Singapore
  • PV quality assurance in Asia
