This Centre proliferates and employs technologies from Advanced Energy Conversion & Storage, Smart Power Systems, and Energy Sensors & Analytics to co-create innovative solutions to mitigate climate change and ensure sustainability for our future. Backed by a team of scientists and engineers with vast experience in chemical, electrical, electronic and mechanical engineering, the Centre offers various facilities including chemistry labs, fuel cell test-stations, various gas supply (including hydrogen), power electronics and mechanical prototyping labs & workshops to conduct applied and industry-relevant research & development.
Advanced Energy Conversion & Storage
Our patented state-of-the-art technologies focus on product and process development for hydrogen generation, fuel cells and applied research on redox-flow batteries.
Smart Power Systems
Development of battery management and telemetry systems, focusing on extended lifetime power solutions, high-efficiency cell balancing technology and real-time smart telemetry.
Energy Sensors & Analytics
Development of robust and efficient energy sensor technology that is coupled with data analytics to smartly manage energy usage and behaviour in homes, buildings and industries.
As Singapore pursues its ambition of becoming a smart nation with a circular economy, there will be an increased demand for battery recycling locally. Our high-throughput flow cell system has the potential to continuously break down spent battery materials into valuable chemicals at ambient conditions. Once adequately developed, it would not only promote the sustainability of Lithium-Ion Battery (LIB) industries, but also generate profound economic value for local and global commercial entities.
Amidst Singapore’s ageing population, increasing numbers of the elderly either stay alone or are accompanied by a domestic helper. This project monitors the usage patterns of household electrical appliances to identify the behaviour of the elderly via a single SmartDB device. Machine learning algorithms are developed to understand lifestyles and behaviours and identify abnormal events and habits of the elderly without compromising on their privacy.
Powered by the world’s highest density hydrogen fuel cell that was developed and patented by the Centre, the car took top spot in the annual Shell Eco-Marathon Race for the years 2018 and 2019. In 2020, the car won the Technical Innovation Award.
