R&D : Foster Innovation in carbon neutral

Discover the ENGIE’s REIDS-SPORE R&D platform which promotes innovative technologies contributing to a carbon neutral economy.

Develop, test and promote innovative technologies that can contribute to a carbon neutral economy.

We look forward to further exploitation of the REIDS-SPORE platform with likeminded organizations to develop a carbon neutral economy.

Xiaoyang PENG - R&D Program Manager from ENGIE Lab Singapore

Developed by ENGIE Lab Singapore, the APAC’ research center of ENGIE, REIDS-SPORE platform is a multifluid microgrid demonstrator platform consists of the tallest wind turbine in the country, the first hydrogen full chain in the region, solar PV, advanced control systems and so on.  

Located on Semakau Landfill in Singapore, the platform itself is meant to be a living lab hosted by ENGIE to the region, to develop, test and promote innovative technologies that can contribute to a carbon neutral economy. To do this, the platform has four unique missions and offers:

  • Develop and test low carbon technologies with likeminded organizations
  • Develop and validate digital solutions that will enable technologies or processes which can facilitate carbon neutral targets
  • Develop and test hydrogen related technologies with partners
  • Provide a platform for educational and industrial training to support energy transition


After many years of continuous effort, the REIDS-SPORE platform has finally been commissioned end of 2020 and starting its first-year integration as of the moment. Although the work on integration and further testing are still ongoing, there have been a lot of return on experiences and lessons learnt from the deployment of the ENGIE flagship living lab in Southeast Asia.



Therefore, Xiaoyang PENG, the R&D Program Manager from ENGIE Lab Singapore, who oversees the REIDS-SPORE platform will share about the platform’s designed offers as well as lessons learnt during the Energy Storage Academy Masterclass in September 2021 in Singapore, the 15 September.

Aside from sharing the opportunities that are held on the platform, there have been many challenges and unique experiences for deploying such a unique installation in the region. During the session in the Energy Storage Academy Masterclass in Singapore, Xiaoyang is going to share with the audiences a glimpse into the different types of challenges that ENGIE has encountered throughout the journey, and how ENGIE, authorities and partners work together to overcome all of them:

  • Challenges relating to technical knowledge and people’s perceptions
  • Challenges relating to regulations locally
  • Challenges relating to environment conditions
  • Challenges relating to cultural differences

All these returns on experiences convert into know-how within ENGIE demonstrating the Group’s ambition and dedication in the energy transition exploration.

We look forward to further exploitation of the REIDS-SPORE platform with likeminded organizations to develop a carbon neutral economy.
