Senior Research Fellow for Next Wave of Energy Systems in a Whole Systems Context
Dr Pei-Hao Li is Senior Research Fellow at UCL Energy Institute, who applies interdisciplinary approaches to tackling complicated energy system transition-related issues. Since joining UCL Energy Institute in 2015, he has played a leading role in developing novel approaches to investigating how to accelerate the decarbonisation of UK’s energy systems, considering consumers’ technology choices, demand-side responses, intermittency of renewable energy, and uncertainty of pathways. He also maintained and developed several flag-ship UK energy system models, such as the UK TIMES model. His engagement with BEIS and CCC has contributed to key energy policies, such as the 5th Carbon Budget. He is currently expanding a novel agent-based model, BRAIN-Energy, to explore market players’ role (e.g. national/local governments, national/local investors and households) in scaling-up SLES and the impacts of the SLES on the whole energy systems for EnergyRev project.
