Solaris Synergy is pleased to announce the completion of the installation of a 100kWp Floating PV system on the Tenghe reservoir in Singapore.
This installation was completed as Phase One of the “Floating PV test bed” initiated and directed by SERIS – the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore, and was accomplished in partnership with BBR Greentech Pte. Ltd. of Singapore.
The system will be tested as part of an international test bed wherein floating PV systems from 8 different manufacturers will be evaluated for their overall performance and effectiveness. In the Phase Two of this program, a further installation of several MW will be opened for bids by the successful contenders in Phase One.
The government of Singapore has made a strategic decision to plan the installation of hundreds of MW of Floating PV and this test bed is the first step in accomplishing the program.

Solaris Synergy and Pristine Sun (US) selected by BIRD Energy for Floating PV project.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Israel's Ministry of National Infrastructure, Energy and Water Resources (MIEW) have announced the selection of six projects to receive $5.1 million under the 2015 Israel-US Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD) Energy program. Solaris-Synergy has been selected by the BIRD energy program to receive funding in partnership with Pristine Sun, LLC of San Francisco to further their ongoing efforts to develop floating solar technology.
Pristine Sun is an independent power producer, a full service EPC, and a leading developer of small utility-scale solar PV power plants. In February, the company signed an agreement to build the largest floating solar project in the United States.

Each (BIRD) Energy program project is conducted by a U.S. and an Israeli partner. Selected projects address energy challenges and opportunities of interest to both countries, while focusing on commercializing clean energy technologies that improve economic competitiveness, create jobs, and support innovative companies. As part of this program, Solaris Synergy, together with Pristine Sun will erect a utility scale Floating –PV installation in California, utilizing the innovative Solaris Synergy technology and leveraging Pristine Sun’s EPC expertise. The project is scheduled for construction in the first half of 2016.

The Global Cleantech Cluster Association is pleased to announce its winners for the 2011 Later Stage Award. They were judged by 28 cleantech venture capitalists, investors and serial entrepreneurs who collectively manage $3.5 billion in clean technology investment, lead by Head Judge Dr. Peter Adriaens. In each category, these companies are making both broad strides in their global industries as well as working closely with their regional cleantech clusters to build sustainable green economies and jobs.

The GCCA Later Stage Award Top 10 winners were selected from an original pool of 4000 eligible companies represented by the GCCA’s 33 member clusters. Each cluster conducted internal evaluations to nominate up to 10 companies in the 10 categories. In total, these member clusters nominated 185 companies for the 2011 Later Stage Award. That number was later narrowed to the Global Top 30 semi-finalists and the Top 10 winners.

Chicago, Illinois USA (cluster: Chicago Clean Energy)
Solaris Synergy has developed a low-cost concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) system designed to float on water surfaces, utilizing inexpensive, easy-to-manufacture platforms, based on a unique, patent pending cooling technology. The two key objectives of developing this system were; a) Significant reduction of the installed cost of the system, and; b) The utilization of “industrial” water surfaces in order to reduce the use of land resources, while simultaneously preserving water quantity and quality.

Solaris installs first live floating concentrated PV system connecting to Israel Electric Corp. grid
Solaris Synergy installed its first live floating concentrated photovoltaic (F-CPV) system connecting to the Israel Electric Corporation (IEC) grid. The system is based at the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies' Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation located on Kibbutz Ketura, 30km north of the Israeli resort town of Eilat. The project is part of Capital Nature Experimentum, a full-service verification and inspection center for new technologies developed by renewable energy companies. "This installation is a milestone for us, and we're confident that it's just the first of many future Solaris implementations in Israel and throughout the world," said Solaris Synergy CEO Yossi Fisher.

Guided tours of the comprehensive system are being offered to attendees of the 4th International Eilat-Eilot Renewable Energy Conference & Exhibition in Eilat on February 24. Solaris will be exhibiting for the third straight year at the conference, which is being held on February 22-24, and Fisher will participate in the conference's Water and Energy Nexus Plenary on February 23.
