In partnership with the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS), this project aims to understand the potential of solar photovoltaics (PV) on building’s roof and façades in the dense residential neighbourhoods of Singapore.

The physical urban morphological parameters such as height, built form, distance between the buildings, orientation, plot ratio, building volume ratio and site coverage have impacts on the solar irradiation on the roof and façades at various intensities. With these parameters in consideration, solar irradiation has been simulated and analysed for 12 existing neighbourhoods of Singapore along with 36 additional modified neighbourhoods.
