PUBLISHER'SNOTE2023 will see many challenges ahead thatdemand both creativity and resilience from allwho are involved. Economic growth, climatechange, technological advances – everything hasan impact on our everyday lives. This year has been a rollercoaster ride with thepandemic and its effects still being felt around theworld. There have been numerous economicchanges due to the fallout from Covid-19 thathave left many people feeling uncertain aboutwhat to expect in 2023. Despite this, there aresome key things expected to happen this year,such as an acceleration of electric vehicle (EV)adoption, an economic recession and consumertrends shifting towards digital payment methods.The EV market is expected to see significantgrowth throughout 2023 as traditional automakersshift their focus towards producing more battery-powered vehicles. This has been fueled byincreasing awareness of EVs benefits such asreduced emissions and increased efficiency,prompting governments around the globe tointroduce incentive schemes for consumers whopurchase these types of cars.In this issue, we explore the exciting world ofrenewable and alternative energy sources. Fromwind turbines to solar panels and hydroelectricity,advances in technology have made it easier totake advantage of these green sources for ourenergy needs. Renewable and alternative energyhas become a hot topic as we strive to reduce ourdependence on fossil fuels and join the globalmovement towards an eco-friendly lifestyle. With electricity costs continually rising, renewableand alternative energy can be seen as anattractive option due to its lower cost comparedto traditional methods such as coal or oil-basedfuels. Investing in these resources can offer long-term financial security by providing a reliablesource of clean electricity at a fraction of theprice. Furthermore, it can also help reduce carbonemissions from power plants that rely on fuelcombustion, which in turn leads to improved airquality and less pollution overall.We are excited to announce that the Saas ConvergenceExhibition and Workshop 2023 will take place inSingapore on 29-30 August 2023.

Page | 20TECHNOLOGYTECHNOLOGYThe current world record of tandem solar cells consisting of a siliconbottom cell and a perovskite top cell is once again at HZB. The newtandem solar cell converts 32.5 % of the incident solar radiation intoelectrical energy. The certifying institute European Solar TestInstallation (ESTI) in Italy measured the tandem cell and officiallyconfirmed this value which is also included in the NREL chart of solar celltechnologies, maintained by the National Renewable Energy Lab, USA.World record back at HZB:Tandem solar cell achieves32.5 percent efficiencyThe lead authors, postdocs Dr.Silvia Mariotti, and Dr. EikeKöhnen in Albrecht’s team,developed an interfacemodification to reduce chargecarrier recombination lossesand applied detailed analysis tounderstand the specificproperties of the interfacemodification. Thesedevelopments were thensuccessfully implemented intandem solar cells, and withhelp of Master’s student LeaZimmermann, combined withfurther optical improvements.In addition, many morescientists and technicianshelped to develop and fabricatethe tandem cells to achieve thissuccess. Altogether, theinterface and opticalmodifications enabled highestphotovoltages (open-circuitvoltage) and resulted in the newrecord efficiency for thisfascinating tandem technology. His team used an advanced perovskitecomposition with a very smart interfacemodification. The lead authors, postdocs Dr.Silvia Mariotti, and Dr. Eike Köhnen inAlbrecht’s team, developed an interfacemodification to reduce charge carrierrecombination losses and applied detailedanalysis to understand the specificproperties of the interface modification.These developments were then successfullyimplemented in tandem solar cells, and withhelp of Master’s student Lea Zimmermann,combined with further opticalimprovements.Scientists from HZBcould significantlyimprove on theefficiency ofperovskite/silicontandem solar cells. "Thisis a really big leapforward that we didn'tforesee a few monthsago. All the teamsinvolved at HZB,especially the PVCompetence Center(PVComB) and theHySPRINT Innovation labteams have workedtogether successfullyand with passion," saysProf. Steve Albrecht.The illustration shows the schematic structure of the tandem solar cell with a bottom cellmade of silicon and a top cell made of perovskite. While the top cell can utilise blue lightcomponents, the bottom cell converts the red and near-infrared components of thespectrum. Different thin layers help to optimally utilise the light and minimise electricallosses.Interface modificationsHis team used an advanced perovskitecomposition with a very smart interfacemodification. Fast ProgressThere is an ongoing efficiencydevelopment by variousresearch institutes andcompanies over the last yearsand especially the last monthwere quite exciting for the field:Various teams from HZB hadachieved a record value in late2021 with an efficiency of 29.8%that was realized by periodicnanotextures. More recently, insummer 2022, the EcolePolytechnique Fédérale deLausanne, Switzerland, firstreported a certified tandem cellabove the 30% barrier at 31.3%,which is a remarkable efficiencyjump over the 2021 value.With the new certified value of32.5%, the record is again backat HZB.
Page | 21TECHNOLOGYTECHNOLOGY "We are very excited about the new valueas it shows that the perovskite/silicontandem technology is highly promisingfor contributing to a sustainable energysupply," says Albrecht.-HZB's scientific director,Prof. Bernd Rech"At 32.5 percent, the solar cellefficiency of the HZB tandems isnow in ranges previously onlyachieved by expensive III/Vsemiconductors. The NREL graphclearly shows how spectacularthe last two increases from EPFLand HZB really are."

R&I arecritical for delivering solutionsand system transformations. Onthe European level, there is anurgent need to increase theefficiency of the entirerenewable energy value chainand integrate sustainabilitythroughout it. Moreover, the newgeopolitical and energy marketreality requires us to drasticallyaccelerate the clean energytransition by increasing Europe'senergy independence andreducing the continent’sreliance on unreliable suppliersand volatile fossil fuels.PEPPERONI, a new R&I projectco-funded by the EU underHorizon Europe and supportedby the Swiss State Secretariatfor Education, Research andInnovation (SERI), willsignificantly contribute towardsreaching these targets.development will be established at Qcells’European headquarters in Thalheim,Germany. The project began on 1 November2022, with the long-term vision of enablingEuropean industrial leadership on PVproduction in the global market.The project will helpadvanceperovskite/silicontandem photovoltaics(PV) technology’sjourney towards marketintroduction and massmanufacturing.PEPPERONI‘s goal is toidentify and addressthe barriers to tandemsolar technology’smarket introduction,and ultimately lay thefoundations for newproduction capacity inEurope. A pilot lineenabling this Clean Energy for EuropeThe European Union (EU) targets climateneutrality by 2050 in a scenario wherebyrenewable energy plays a central role.Currently, energy is responsible for morethan 75% of the EU’s greenhouse gasemissions. The research and innovation(R&I) programme, Horizon Europe (whichruns until 2027 with a budget of €95.5 billionis one of the key actions taken by theEuropean Commission (EC) to tackleclimate change and speed up the energytransition towards renewablesHarnessing solartechnologies to enableEuropean manufacturingPEPPERONI aims to set up a pilotline to develop solar moduleswith perovskite/silicon (Si)tandem technology. Funding willtotal approximately €14.5million over four years, with theconsortium covering the fullvalue chain of PV innovation.The most widely establishedsolar cell technologies to dateare made with silicon, andsilicon PV is now one of thecheapest means of electricityproduction in many parts of theworld. The solar industry’ssuccess in recent years haspushed the industry towards thecurrent practical limits ofefficiency for silicon technology.To exceed the limits of single-material cells, scientists haveproposed to add onecomplementary solar cell toform so-called “tandem” solarcells.PEPPERONI, a four-year Research and Innovation project co-funded under Horizon Europe and jointly coordinated byHelmholtz-Zentrum Berlin and Qcells, will support Europe inreaching its renewable energy target of climate neutrality by2050
PEPPERONI proposes to use atype of silicon bottom cell,which is based on technologythat is already produced at agigawatt scale globally:Q.ANTUM technology, whichwas first introduced in 2012 bythe project partner leading thetechnology development,Qcells. As part of its proprietaryQ.ANTUM Technology, Qcellshas developed severalinnovations, from first ideas tomass production readiness,and successfully transferredthese innovations into high-volume production.Page | 23Examples include theintroduction of PERC-like(passivated emitter and rearcell) solar cell technology, aswell as half-cell, wire-basedinterconnection and zero-gapsolar module technology.Recently, Qcells has expandedits Q.ANTUM technology bydeveloping a passivatingcontact technology (Q.ANTUMNEO) to further boost solar celland module efficiency. Q.ANTUMtechnology enables Qcells’unique Yield Security, whichoffers a number of additionalbenefits regarding cellperformance and reliability.Applying the same provenproduct requirements to thePEPPERONI tandem technology isa crucial task of the project.PEPPERONI has selected technologythat promises the best ratio ofperformance over manufacturingcosts – silicon/perovskite tandem.Perovskite, a novel class materialwith a special crystal structure, canbe fine-tuned to take advantage ofthe parts of the solar spectrum thattypical silicon PV materials cannotutilise very efficiently, meaning theymake excellent hybrid-tandempartners. PEPPERONI will 'spice up'industrial silicon cells with aperovskite top cell. This tandemdesign benefits from the industrialexpertise of silicon PV and extendsthe range of attainable powerconversion efficiency (PCE) beyondthe practical limits of silicon.Increasing the PCE of solar cells isimportant for two reasons. In thelong run, it is the most effective wayto reduce the levelised cost ofelectricity (LCOE). And in the shortterm, it is the best way to promotephotovoltaics for applications wherespace is limited e.g., rooftops,facades, or vehicles.Within PEPPERONI, a pilot line for thedevelopment of industrial-typetandem cells and modules will beestablished at the Qcells Europeanheadquarters in Thalheim, Germany,and will feature innovativeequipment, processes and materialsto produce high-efficiency tandemcells and modules The project aimsto scale up the active area ofperovskite/Si tandems from the1cm2 of today’s record devices toindustry-relevant dimensions.PEPPERONI’s approach promises afast and cost-competitive route tomass-production of PV modules ofhigh performance and longdurability.TECHNOLOGYTECHNOLOGY -Fabian Fertig,Director Global R&DWafer & Cells atQcells,“Qcells is proud to bepart of the PEPPERONIconsortium with itsworld-class technologypartners.

Low or zero-carbon hydrogen has the potential to support Singapore'sdecarbonisation efforts and achieve net zero emissions by 2050. The EOIwill enable us to explore the use of low or zero-carbon fuels such ashydrogen and ammonia for power generation, alongside other low-carbon alternatives such as electricity imports and domestic renewableenergy sources. Low or zero-carbon ammonia may also have multipleend-use pathways for power generation and bunkering. Beyond thepower and maritime sectors, low or zero-carbon hydrogen andammonia are also promising decarbonisation pathways for our energy,chemicals and aviation sectors.Due to its low energy density, hydrogen gas needs to be liquefied,compressed or converted into a hydrogen carrier for transport andstorage. Ammonia is currently one of the most technologically readyhydrogen carriers with an established international supply chain forindustrial use. The EO! will enable Singapore to assess the viability ofsuch projects, and support the development of the safety standards,regulations and ecosystem needed.Page | 35GREAT OPPORTUNITYGREAT OPPORTUNITY-Mr. Ngiam Shih Chun,Chief Executive of EMA.“Hydrogen and ammoniahave the potential to be aneedle-movingdecarbonisation solution forthe power sector.

Page | 38Making the futureenergy system securemeans making itsustainable“How can the energy transition and energy security beadvanced in parallel?” That is the key question facing energyleaders today. The answer lies in seeing these not ascompeting imperatives, but complementary. Sustainabilityand security must be core characteristics of the future energysystem. The world cannot achieve energy transition withoutintegrated solutions that address both simultaneously.While sustainability continues to be top of mind for leaders, thereal emphasis now is on strengthening energy systems. Manyare concerned that a de-emphasis on sustainability maythreaten the momentum to net zero. But that’s not a foregoneconclusion.To meet short-term security needs, some governments havebegun to roll back green policies to ensure the stability of theirenergy supply chains. Actions to reinforce supplies of naturalgas have included securing alternate sources, building newgas infrastructure to receive LNG (liquefied natural gas)cargos, and increasing the share of coal in the power mix.Energy security and sustainability arecomplementary to each other.The current short-term drive to strengthenenergy supplies will eventually accelerateclean-energy momentum.A new framework defines six areas in whichto pursue the energy transition.These responses may lock a region intoa fossil fuel commitment and seeminglydisplace investments in clean energysolutions in the short term. But theenergy crisis will also serve as a catalystto accelerate momentum toward asecure, clean energy-led future. Short-term pain will yield medium- and long-term gains, which is evident from anumber of policy packages, such as theUS Inflation Reduction Act and RePowerEU, which bring clean energy pathwaysto the foreground amid the ongoingenergy crisis.The energy security challenges we facetoday are not those of the past. Some ofthe conventional solutions (geopolitics,resource storage) miss addressing themin totality, while others (productivity,consumption, efficiency, andregulations) are valid yet requireadjustments. New approaches areneeded to deal with digitally connectedenergy assets and systems, extendedsupply chains and emergingtechnologies at scale.The World Economic Forum, incollaboration with Accenture, proposes acomprehensive framework thathighlights how connected actions acrosssix dimensions can address thesesecurity challenges and ensure thesecurity of the energy transition.FEATURE STORYFEATURE STORY

So, my main take-awayin previous experiences is if all of us could recognize the issueboldly and identify its root cause, it can be resolved logically.Moving forward towards our vision without past burdens issomething that I would like to propagate amongst my teammembers. Mr. Don TengManagingDirector OMRON AsiaPacific Pte Ltd1. What are some of the keystrengths of OMRON?2. How would you implementa more structured andcollaborative environmentfor all divisions in APAC?I strongly believe in establishing a“happy work culture” and continuouslyworking on improving upon it day byday. This is the first important step toensure a more structured andcollaborative work environment. Ahappy work culture is built upon apsychologically safe environment thatenables diverse people to askquestions, raise issues, give and receivefeedback, and even have differences inopinion without losing respect for eachother. These are few of the simple yeteffective measures towards which I amcontinuously working upon along withmy team members to ensure a vibrantand collaborative work environment.3. What kind of frustration did you experiencein your previous experiences that can betranslated effectively into a new way ofthinking?4. What are the main features of OMRONinnovative long-term strategy plan?OMRON’s recently announced long term vision – Shaping theFuture 2030 (SF 2030) focuses on three social issues and needs:Climate change, the aging of society, and increasing wealthgap among individuals.The goals for these three issues are achieving carbon neutrality,implementing a digital society, and extending healthy lifeexpectancy.

We believe that with ourunique automation capabilities basedon human-machine harmony, we willbe able to contribute towards creationof sustainable and innovative factoriescoexisting with the environment andwell being of people across APAC.22 MINUTES22 MINUTESFrom replacement to collaboration, the manufacturing worldhas been witnessing a significant transition in the human-machine relationship over the last few decades. One of theprimary characteristics of this evolution is the merging ofboundaries between factories and society — necessitatingtransition from collaboration to “harmony between people andmachines” in the manufacturing sector.With climate change and the unprecedented situation fromCOVID, consumption orientation is getting replaced withsustenance orientation. The makers are now pondering oversocial needs more than ever, rather than only industry- andproduction-based needs. All this, in turn, is demanding dataefficiency driven systems to do more by transitioning toknowledge-driven systems, thus delivering more sustainableresults and sustainable entities.6. How do you see roboticsand automation enhancingthe future of supply chaindesign?Looking at the future, I believe thesupply chain industry, especially intralogistics, is expected to move towardsunleashing the power of data andanalytics to identify gaps andbottlenecks in warehouse operations.Most organisations are keen to pursue itactively to seek improvement inproductivity and efficiency. This canonly be made possible with thedeployment of robotics & AI solutionsranging from Warehouse ManagementSystems (WMS) integration (perhapsthrough cloud) to multiple modes ofmaterial transfer (both horizontal andvertical), automated cross-docks,picking, sorting, packaging, etc.Increased usage of smart3D vision, aswell as deeper exploration into assetstraceability using GPS/5G both withinand outside the warehouse is also onthe cards, which will be led by roboticsand automation solutions.7. What are the keys challenges ahead as wemove to more sustainable design practices?Keeping in view the this transition towards sustainability,OMRON has outlined its direction as “Empowering PeopleThrough Automation” for its next long-term vision: “Shaping theFuture 2030” (SF 2030). For the automation business, we willundertake deployment of the Innovative-Automation conceptto bring in more technological innovation and enhance respectfor the environment, because we believe both are essential formanufacturing and production sites. We feel that if we do thisright, we will be able to contribute to a sustainable future basedon harmony between people machines.
