Senoko Energy Launches SolarShare

Senoko Energy today, announced the launch of SolarShare 2.0 – the first commercially available peer-to-peer grid scale trading platform for solar energy in the country. Following the successful launch of the pilot project back in 2020, SolarShare 2.0 is set to revolutionise the energy landscape by enabling businesses and households in Singapore to be powered, at scale, with renewable energy. In line with the government's goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, SolarShare 2.0 seeks to enable businesses and households to enjoy sustainable green energy 24/7 in time to come, when green energy imports and battery storage become available. With this innovative peer-to-peer trading platform, businesses and households will be able to buy and sell their own solar energy at their preferred price, making it more accessible and affordable. Senoko customers will be able to buy energy matched to specific solar generators, or from a community pool of excess solar energy. Another key feature of SolarShare 2.0 is that it allows businesses and households to track the source, time, and price of solar energy over the grid as well as measure and trace their energy consumption every half hourly. This transparency enables businesses and households to monitor their energy usage and make informed decisions to further reduce their carbon footprint.

Mr. Eric Maka, President & CEO of Senoko Energy, said: "SolarShare 2.0 is one of our key decarbonisation initiatives, along with our recent partnership with City Energy to jointly study the technical and commercial feasibility of the import and supply of hydrogen. These initiatives demonstrate Senoko's strong commitment to playing our part to help Singapore achieve its net zero vision.

Mr. James Chong, Senior Vice President, Commercial of Senoko Energy, said: "SolarShare 2.0 has been designed to empower businesses and households on their green energy journey by enabling them to use clean solar energy from fellow Senoko Energy customers. By enabling consumers to measure and trace their carbon footprint, they will not only be able to better understand how they can be more efficient but importantly, be able to take charge of their energy consumption."

Mr. Chong further added, "With this initiative, we are also looking to encourage property owners with rooftop space to install solar panels. By contributing excess energy to the grid that can be shared with the community, Singaporeans can do their part to help strengthen Singapore's energy security."

Mr. Steve Hoy, CEO of Enosi, an Australian energy traceability company, said: "SolarShare 2.0 allows everyone to become an active participant in the green energy revolution. The platform's intuitiveness paves the way for businesses and households to take intelligent decisions, enhance their energy efficiency, reduce carbon footprint as well as overall costs. Our customers in Australia are already benefiting from access to solar energy for households, and better returns from rooftop solar investment for businesses. Enosi looks forward to collaborating with Senoko and leveraging our combined knowledge of energy distribution and traceability on the path to a zero-carbon energy future.

SolarShare 2.0 will now be available exclusively to all Senoko Energy's business and household customers from November 1, 2023. Businesses and households utilising the trading platform will be charged a platform subscription fee of as low as S$5.40 (including GST) per month.

ASIG Releases AI Capabilities in Orbit App

Asia Innovations Group Limited ("ASIG"), a Singapore-based company with a growing portfolio of popular social mobile apps, has introduced first-of-its-kind AI technology in its new app, Orbit. With a unique text-to-image feature in Orbit's latest update, ASIG has unveiled new, cutting-edge capability to an already innovative app.

Orbit is a social discovery app that uses AI to facilitate making new friends. Helping users along the way is Obi, a GPT-4 powered assistant who breaks the ice by prompting newly connected users with games that help them get to know each other such as Truth or Dare, Would You Rather, and Trivia. Users can also chat directly with Obi, who can play text-based games, role-play as a user's favorite TV or film character, or chat – providing users with a fun mix of options to explore their AI-powered experience.

Additionally, Orbit users can chat with people worldwide via live, 3D avatars. Unlike most social apps, which use images of users' actual appearances, Orbit's 3D avatars allow users to chat freely without worries about their physical appearance, thereby protecting their identity.

Last month, Orbit introduced another groundbreaking new feature. Orbit's latest version allows users to create original AI art from their own words, using new text-to-image technology.. Orbit is the first social discovery app to use such technology, adding another feature that sets it apart in the highly competitive field of mobile social apps.

"Orbit is nothing short of groundbreaking," said ASIG Chairman and CEO Ouyang Yun. "Every feature in this app is designed to bring an exciting, futuristic atmosphere to socializing online. Making friends can feel awkward, tedious, and sometimes even dangerous – especially online. With Orbit, we're using AI to make meeting new friends easy, safe, and fun."

With Orbit, ASIG has added another innovative app to its portfolio, which includes Uplive, the global live video platform, and the top-rated dating apps CuteU and Lamour. Across these platforms, ASIG continues to emerge as a leader in new technology and fostering human connection around the globe.

Power Knot wins bid for the installation of biodigesters

Power Knot LLC, the market leader for onsite organic waste management solutions, announced today that it won the bid for the installation of biodigesters to manage the disposal of food waste at the Compass One Mall in Singapore. This bid was won through Power Knot's partner in Singapore, Datumstruct. Datumstruct (S) Pte Ltd is a leading solution provider for workplace solutions, environmental technology, and command centers.

Compass One is a suburban shopping mall that was built as an integrated development with a condominium, Compass Heights. The mall purchased two LFC-1000 biodigesters and had them slated for installation in late 2022.

The LFC® biodigester is a machine that digests food waste. These machines are usually installed in a commercial kitchen and reduce the expense, inconvenience, mess, and carbon footprint of disposing of waste food that would otherwise be hauled to a landfill. Power Knot has ten different sizes that digest from 9 kg (20 lb) per day to 3000 kg (6600 lb) per day of food waste. With many hundreds of installations globally, the LFC biodigester has proven to be reliable, safe, and cost effective.

"Many Singaporean companies are moving towards modern solutions for age-old issues such as waste management," said Thomas Toh, Technical Sales Director at Datumstruct. "The use of modern technology allows these companies to not only track the amount of waste that's being diverted from the landfill, but reduce it by understanding the source and types of waste."

"Key to the selection of the Power Knot LFC biodigesters is the ability to remotely feed the machines and to track the source or type of the waste using NFC cards," said Iain Milnes, president of Power Knot. "Once installed, these machines will improve operations and accountability at the mall greatly."

All LFC biodigesters automatically connect to the LFC Cloud, Power Knot's revolutionary continuous data analytics system. The LFC Cloud shows statistics on usage, diagnostics, and service schedules, and can be accessed from any device anywhere in the world without installing an app. The LFC biodigester securely sends data about the operation of the LFC biodigester to the server and that data is retained for five years. All data that is available on the LFC touch screen is sent to the LFC Cloud where a user can easily create reports for stakeholders.

Power Knot provides safe and economically sound solutions for commercial, industrial, and military customers globally seeking to reduce their carbon footprint. Our technologies are proven, available today, have been in reliable use for many years, and offer a payback period typically of less than two years. We design, develop, and manufacture our products in our headquarters in Silicon Valley, California.
