Project Enkindle, led by ERI@N staff (bottom-up initiative) was a relief programme implemented in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan (November 2013).
Targeted easy to deploy renewable technologies involve: Solar PV, Wind / Marine turbine, and Integrated Battery. Under Project EnKindle, more than 90 easy to deploy Renewable Energy (RE) systems were installed across 5 sites in Philippines that benefits more than 168 households, 6 Schools and 19 Community Centres (5323 individuals). Installed RE systems under the project have resulted in huge cost saving in terms of fuel saved that was being used for lighting and other basic needs previously.
Project Emergency Power with Red Cross Singapore
The project intends to develop a rapidly deployable hybrid DC-AC module for Micro Power Parks (MPP) that can primarily be used as (1) emergency power sources for critical functions in disaster zone and battlefields (2) smart-grid for peace time deployment in remote areas and future low voltage distribution systems. MPP will have adaptability for different renewable energy sources, variable speed diesel generator and different loads. The project was launched in 2015 and is expected to be completed by 2018.
