The Energy Research Institute @ NTU (ERI@N), inaugurated in June 2010, was set up with the intention of building on NTU’s existing research strengths, synergizing various research groups, and mobilizing resources in energy-related research. ERI@N’s mission is to develop and maintain a research program and associated facilities, focusing on world-class energy research through a holistic, multi-disciplinary approach that synergizes competencies of their researchers, stakeholders, and partners.
ERI@N is determined to enable knowledge creation and technology transfer in strong alliance with government agencies, leading industry players and SMEs and global universities to support Singapore’s national objectives to meet Singapore’s COP21 commitments. These commitments will be ratified in part through the development of green buildings, renewable energy deployment, proliferation of energy efficient solutions, creation of a “car-lite” society, digitalisation of the energy system enabling a ubiquitous smart grid architecture and establishing low carbon districts.
A large pool of researchers and staff coming from 25 nations across the world, having wide skillsets and expertise in Science, Engineering, Technology, Policy and Social science contributes to a vibrant, multidisciplinary and collaborative research environment at ERI@N, enabling it to achieve its mission for distinction and contribute to National aspirations for a Smart & Sustainable Nation.
