NTU and ENGIE deploy Singapore’s first long-span wind turbine at Semakau Landfill
Singapore, 2017 - The turbine is one of up to seven which will generate power for hybrid microgrids on the landfill south of Singapore, together with other sources such as photovoltaic (solar) panels, as part of Singapore's drive towards developing sustainable energy. It is part of the region's first large-scale, offshore power grid system, called the Renewable Energy Integration Demonstrator (REIDS), an initiative by Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

Channel News Asia clip - Consolidating solar, wind and tidal energy on Semakau Landfill
Singapore, 2016 - Come 2017, Semakau Landfill will be the largest microgrid R&D platform in Southeast Asia. Energy from the sun, wind and tide will power the whole of Semakau Landfill by end 2017. This includes a new desalination plant which will provide fresh water to fish hatcheries on the island. Professor Hans Bjorn Puttgen of NTU, who is principal investigator and Reids director, said the more different sources of energy, the better the chance of covering energy needs. What NTU is building on Semakau is ways to demonstrate how to integrate these diverse energy sources and simulate various situations in Southeast Asia. The goal is to come up with affordable solutions to provide clean energy for remote communities. Phase one of the project has been completed. Phase two will occupy over 64,000 sq metres of land or about eight football fields.

ENGIE Lab and REIDS Programme
Singapore, 2016 - In the Asia-Pacific region, ENGIE has created a center of excellence in Research and Development, the ENGIE Lab Singapore. The activities of ENGIE Lab Singapore cover three specific areas: smart distributed energy for sustainable cities and islands, industrial energy efficiency and gas-related technologies. In partnership with the Nanyang Technological University, the ENGIE Lab Singapore designed the application PowerZee to help reduce energy consumption on campus. ENGIE Lab Singapore is also involved in a major program in Singapore, REIDS (Renewable Energy Integration Demonstrator Sinagpore), which aims to develop a microgrid platform to provide energy access for isolated islands.
