Carbon emissions reductions in cities through large scale PV deployment

Yue Wu

University of Southampton

Dr Phil Yue Wu is a researcher in sustainable energy at the University of Southampton. His works in city-scale renewable energy applications have contributed to a number of research projects addressing challenges faced by cities, to reduce carbon emission and improve energy system efficiency. His research interests also include the connection of energy usage with society wellbeing. His most recent work is funded by the UK and China governments (EP/N010779/1), focusing on city-wide analysis to propel cities towards resource efficiency and better wellbeing.
