The Energy Cluster coordinates energy-related activities (e.g. Experimental Power Grid Centre) within A*STAR to better support Singapore’s overall efforts in energy efficiency such as the Urban Solutions and Sustainability (USS) Domain in RIE2020. A*STAR’s industry-oriented capabilities and focus on system-level solutions can provide unique solutions for problems both in Singapore and beyond.

  • Advanced Energy Storage Programme

The Advanced Energy Storage Programme is a joint lab initiative between IMRE and NUS to leverage on the electro-chemistry capabilities within the two entities to focus on developing battery research, beyond Lithium-ion technology, for high power and energy density, environmentally-friendly and cost effective electro-chemical storage solutions. The programme is designed to build and deepen research efforts in metal-air battery technology as well as the integration of battery with super-capacitor to achieve the most optimal energy and power density performance.
