TUMCREATE II was the second multi-disciplinary five-year programme comprising six research groups.

Based on the foundations of TUMCREATE I, the aim was to develop a concept for a possible transport layer between Singapore's public train (MRT, Mass Rapid Transit) and bus system.

My group worked on methods to integrate electric vehicles and renewable energies into the power system.

This included estimating and utilising the demand side flexibility of cooling systems in buildings and electric vehicles connected to chargers.

Including grid constraints and possible market frameworks, this work led to the development of our software tool MESMO and paved the way to the projects Balancing Solar PV using Electric Vehicles, SITEM and PRIMO.

The main mode of transport we analysed was public buses.

After developing a model for estimating the energy demand of buses subject to weather and traffic conditions, we teamed up with the developers of CityMoS at TUMCREATE and integrated a model for electric buses into that tool.

With this enhancement, we eventually got the SITEM project awarded where CityMoS and MESMO were used in co-simulation to investigate the impact of electric vehicles on Singapore's power and transport system.

Other aspects of the work were about looking at renewable energy potentials in the ASEAN region, and options for alternative fuels.

This finally led to our latest project on Singapore's Pathway to Carbon Neutrality.
