SINGAPORE

BIPVs located all over Singapore


By the edges of the Singapore Sports Hub, there are Solar Panels Located and covering 7000m2 of it. This will help them to achieve a maximum capacity of 707kWp. 


As I have always been to the National Stadium for years since it was built, which was in 2014, that particular area receives the most sunlight during mid-day, therefore, it’s quite an advantage of that area to get the most sunlight out of it

Jurong East Carpark

In Jurong, the west side of Singapore, there’s a carpark that’s located outdoors with a few short buildings around its surroundings.

The BIPV has been applied as a roof and also acts as sunshades and provides shelter.

It is a huge advantage for them to have this installed on such a place as it will manage to receive as much sunlight as possible that they could possibly harvest as there are no possible shadows nearby.

People’s Association

One of the People’s Association(PA) strategic thrusts is to transform community infrastructure into lifestyle & bonding destinations to meet the changing needs and aspirations of residents. The focus is to create conducive community space that brings the resident to meet, interact, bond & build social capital.

Its headquarters at King George’s Avenue was one of the very few buildings that have achieved Green Mark GoldPLUS rating in 2007. The design is inspired by the idea of a “rain tree with outreach foliage” and lauded for its innovation in environmentally-sustainable design which includes a naturally-ventilated central atrium, a “breathing wall” and a lightweight secondary roof with building-integrated photovoltaic skylights

In the area that is filled with residential houses which landed properties, there’s a house that has a skylight rooftop/canopy that uses BIPV.

This is great for the owner of the house as it has put an advantage for themselves to be able to save energy and also having cheaper electricity bills in the long run.

Meanwhile, even when the owner of the house is away from home, which means 0 power usage, they could possibly harvest energy as it could get direct sunlight from the sun as the house location has minimal shadow obstructions.

Having BIPV in residential units is very rare as it is very uncommon for people changing their rooftops to having BIPV skylight.

This will bring a lot of benefits in terms of energy harvesting as they could rely mainly from the natural resource such as the sun as landed properties in Singapore has 0 shadow obstruction. Also not wasting any bills on electricity to light up the house as it will allow direct sunlight in.

BIOPOLIS

NEA is collaborating with JTC and a private company to demonstrate the innovative use of BIPV in the form of architectural special glass modules at the façade through a test bedding project at the Biopolis which is a JTC development located in One North.

The PV system would meet the lectrical needs of the Biopolis Visitor Centre during the day.

It was installed in May 2004 and it will be harvesting energy from the sun at a capacity of 20kWp.
