In 2016, Sunseap donated a solar system to Tanglin Academy, the largest tennis academy in Singapore. This made Tanglin Academy the first local tennis center to introduce clean energy practices. Hoppecke’s energy storage solution will help Tanglin Academy further reduce its carbon footprint.

Solar energy produced during the day can be stored and discharged on cloudy days or in the evenings to illuminate the Academy’s tennis courts. The partnership will help Tanglin Academy utilize more clean energy and reduce its reliance on its diesel generator which is currently used to supplement the solar energy generated from the solar panels on its premises.

Shawn Tan, Senior Manager of Special Projects at Sunseap Group, said the partnership with Hoppecke will serve as a testbed for Sunseap to launch hybrid off-grid energy solutions on a commercial scale in the future. He noted that the enhanced solar system will help Tanglin Academy save more than 15 to 20 percent of its energy costs and reduce its carbon footprint by over 8.3 tonnes per year.

Sunseap also works with enterprise development agency, Enterprise Singapore (previously IE Singapore and SPRING Singapore), to build its product development capabilities in micro grids and on test bedding projects.

“We are pleased to see this partnership between Sunseap, a homegrown SME, and Hoppecke, a multinational company, create an innovative and more efficient solar-and-diesel hybrid energy solution,” said Geoffrey Yeo, Director, Urban Solutions of Enterprise Singapore.
