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 designs 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 drives four of SERIS’ seven targeted leadership areas: High-performance PV systems for the tropics, variability management of PV, solarisation of Singapore, and PV quality assurance.
In order to leverage synergies within SERIS and to strengthen certain core activities in the SES cluster, the following organisational changes were made in 2017:
