Energy Challenge​

Eco-Spark - Energy Open Call

Current grid-connected energy systems are relatively inefficient and there are huge hurdles in connecting such systems to new technologies like electric vehicles and renewables. Furthermore, it will be costly to build a new grid-connected system from scratch. The Eco Spark Energy Design Challenge is to address this situation and design an off-grid energy system that is affordable, self-sustaining, compact, portable and promotes community living.


The energy design should consider the local context and growth from unit to community-scale specific to the Southeast Asian Climate. The system should be able to operate independently without connection to the main electrical supply system. Create your own scalable, self-sustaining, modular Eco-Spark which focuses on human-centric design supported by technology. The specifications of the solutions are listed below.


The chosen concept will be built
at Jurong Innovation District
(JID) in Singapore.
