About 30 businesses and residents have signed up for a pilot project in Pulau Ubin, Singapore, which gives them 24-hr power, utilizing the sun and bio-diesel.
The micro-grid pilot project will bring cleaner and cheaper electricity with improved scalability and reliability for both residents and businesses at Pulau Ubin. Previously, residents and businesses had to rely solely on their own diesel generators.
The micro-grid is part of a pilot by the Energy Market Authority to assess the impact of intermittent energy sources, such as solar, on grid operations. Work on the micro-grid began two years ago, when a local consortium, comprising Daily Life Renewable Energy and OKH Holdings was awarded the project.
The consortium worked in collaboration with Regen Power, which has been awarded the prestigious “Product and Technology Award” by the Sustainable Energy Association of Australia (SEA). This award was for Regen’s HybridGen™, a hybrid generator which uses technology patented by Regen.
