Yesterday’s unveiling of a Solar Lab by SERIS (Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore) which boasts a full-scale facility that tests and develops solar modules in South-East Asia, brings to light the passionate intensity and commitment that powers our sunny isle in its pursuit to harness and adopt #solarenergy.

Being the first of its kind in the tropics, deputy chief executive of SERIS, Dr Thomas Reindl affirmed that the Solar Lab has the ‘natural advantage’ of being able to conduct long-term outdoor tests of solar panels in such a climate. 

The Solar Lab is a means to SERIS’ end to put our sunny isle on the world#solarmap by making Singapore the global test centre for solar systems in the tropics.

Pure Brilliance!!!

Pure Tension - a portable solar-powered pavilion crafted to fit in the trunk of the car and deploy quickly to soak in the sun’s energy, turning it all into usable electricity.

Sunny outlook for #solarenergy

IMAGINE - John Lennon would’ve approved, for sure!!!

A bright future shines for the New South Wales Australian town of Tathra as the community warmly adopts a solar future  

It wouldn’t be hard to IMAGINE solar communities powering up all over Singapore & for that matter, the rest of the world. Let’s start the wheels of the solar revolution turning NOW for a radiant future!

Stars that see the light … many of whom are also mega solar advocates! Think the likes of Edward Norton, Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Daryl Hannah, Ed Begley Jr. (the list keeps getting longer!) … now that’s truly the power of star quality at work.

To reduce their carbon footprint, many have brilliantly opted to power their homes with #solarenergy. This commitment to adopting renewable and sustainable energy is a shining example of trailblazing the green revolution. Props to each & every one of these luminaries

The future of #solarenergy is irrefutably looking up as our youth demonstate a committed passion for exploring, garnering, adopting and developing solar technology. 

Competitions such as the AEC (Alternative Energy Car Challenge) Challenge Solar Prix rouse consciousness and inspire the young of today to reach for the sky and emphatically channel their creative energies in their relentless pursuit of finding green solutions to our energy crisis. 

Just watch the video and you’ll agree that the future’s looking bright

Sailing in space … powered by SOLAR!!!
Planertary Society’s LightSail, an unmanned satellite-like craft known as a solar sail powered by the sun’s rays, is scheduled to be launched atop a SpaceX rocket in 2016.
With four ultra-thin Mylar sails, the 30cm spacecraft may undertake a journey round the cosmos and aims to reach orbit aboard a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket. This odyssey of discovery will be funded by private donors and Planetary Society members.
