It achieves this via seven Interdisciplinary Research Programmes (IRP) and two flagship projects that covers the energy value chain from generation, transmission to end use. The IRPs address research covering the domains of renewables, low carbon generation along with energy storage and fuel cells; renewables integration, multi-energy systems and grids; sustainable buildings, future mobility solutions and maritime clean energy. Both Flagship Programmes, EcoCampus and Renewable Energy Integration Demonstrator Singapore (REIDS) focus on solutions to achieve energy efficiency and renewable energy integration into smart micro grids. ERI@N is determined to enable knowledge creation and technology transfer in strong alliance with government agencies, leading industry players and SMEs and global universities to support Singapore’s national objectives to meet Singapore’s COP21 commitments. These commitments will be ratified in part through the development of green buildings, renewable energy deployment, proliferation of energy efficient solutions, and creation of a “Car-Lite” society, digitalisation of the energy system enabling a ubiquitous smart grid architecture and establishing low carbon districts.
