Energy Challenge

Eco Spark - Energy open call

Current grid-connected energy system are relatively inefficient and there are huge hurdles in connecting such system to new technologies like elec-tric vehicle and renewables. Furthermore, it will be costly to build a new grid connected system from scratch. The aim of 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 motivates community living.


The energy design should consider the local context and growth from unit to community scale specific to South East Asian Climate. The system should be able to operate independently without the 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.


Chosen concept will be built
at Jurong Innovation District
