Abstract: Renewable energy has been a major spotlight research interest in electricity market industry since the last few decades. As fossil fuel is declining over time at a rapid rate, the demand for renewable energy – solar, wind has been growing very rapidly in order to make up world energy supply. In addition, the threat of climate change and global warming issues lead people to look for clean and sustainable solutions rather than conventional sources to be able to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Singapore, well-known as a clean and green city has also big interest in renewable energy technologies. Being an island nation, there has a large potential of wave and tidal energy for off-grid energy system. This reports provides the information about the investigation of battery suitability based on wave resources from Tenah Merah Ferry Terminal. Firstly, it starts with literature review which discusses information regarding current renewable energy resources and mainly focus on wave energy system. Batteries for energy storage system is also discussed as energy storage system is inevitable to make renewable energy efficient. Methodology for wave energy system sizing and criteria for battery selection is also included followed by results and discussion of the simulation outcomes. Lastly, recommendations for future improvements is discussed in the conclusion of the report.
