Consumer Energy Usage Data in Smart City Development (CEUS)
October 2020 – March 2022
CEUS was a seed-funded Intra-CREATE collaborative project between Cambridge CARES and the Singa-pore-ETH Centre. The CEUS project complements Singapore’s pursuit of more decarbonised, resilient, and affordable electricity supply in the electricity market through its aims to lay the groundwork for Singapore consumers to manage their energy usage and cost. The objectives of CEUS were to develop new consumer semantics and innovative user interfaces, and explore options to integrate real-time energy consumption data that is sensitive to policy nuances within a smart city context.

Cambridge Alternative Finance Collaboration Network (CAFCN)
January 2021 – March 2022
CAFCN was set up by the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance (CCAF), with the foundational support of the Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office. Through it’s research collaboration with Cambridge CARES alongside a bi-lateral programmatic relationship between the Asian Development Bank Institute and the CCAF, CAFCN aimed to accelerate tech-enabled financial innovation and knowledge sharing across the Asia-Pacific region.

eCO₂EP: A chemical energy storage technology
January 2018 – June 2021
eCO₂EP was a three-year programme, bringing together researchers from the University of Cambridge, the University of California, Berkeley, the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) to develop ways of transforming carbon dioxide (CO₂) emitted as part of the industrial process into compounds that are useful in the chemical industry supply chain.

Rapid Industrialisation of Next Generation Nanomaterials (RINGs)
March 2019 – February 2021
The goal of the RINGs project (Rapid industrialization of next generation nanomaterials) was to develop and commercialise scalable processes for advanced nanomaterial synthesis. In this project, co-funded by the SMART Innovation Centre and led by Dr Nicholas JOSE (Research Fellow, CARES), continuous microreactors, machine
learning and automated methods were combined as a platform for materials development and scale-up. The proof-of-concept project was the rapid development of antibacterial nano-ZnO coatings. Research from the RINGs project is now being further developed by the spin-off Accelerated Materials.
