EMA-KETEP Joint Grant Call 2019 Development of Next Generation Lithium-ion ESS solution & Smart Distributed ESS Management Application for Fire Hazard Mitigation Under Hot-Humid Climatic ConditionProject will develop novel hybrid ESS by coupling the lithium-ion batteries with lithium-ion capacitors to increase their performance. It will also develop a Smart Distributed ESS Management System (SDEMS) designed for Singapore's hot and humid climate. The SDEMS will come with an artificial intelligence (AI) correction model to optimise ESS charging for better battery stability and fire safety.

EMA-KETEP Joint Grant Call 2020Development Of Near-Shore Floating PV Solar Islands: Novel Floating Structure, 1.1MWp Demonstration and Cross-Country Climatic ComparisonProject will develop novel floating systems and anti-biofouling technologies to enable floating PV to be deployed in a less sheltered site with harsher environmental conditions. The test-bed will be Singapore's first deep water floating PV, comprising 1MWp of solar PV and 100kWh of floating ESS, at a site which is exposed to open seas and seabed depth of up to 90m.Principal Investigator: Frank Phuan, Sunseap Energy Ventures Pte Ltd
