Dr Wang's research covers energy-efficient building, Passive House technologies, Smart Home, built environment, and automation control engineering. Specific projects include optimization of HVAC system, waste heat recovery, and building performance modelling and monitoring. He received the PhD degree (2015) in Building Services Engineering and Passive House Technologies at Technical University of Munich, Germany. Subsequently, he has worked at the ZAE Bayern as the Research Scientist and Project Scientist.

Dr Wang is the regular reviewer of several international archival journals, including Applied Energy (Elsevier), Energy and Buildings (Elsevier), Building and Environment (Elsevier), and Air Quality, Atmosphere & Health (Springer) etc. He has served as a member on the editorial board of the Energy Research Journal, US. His activities since 2009 have materialized in over 30 papers in international archival and regional academic journals and conference proceedings.

Dr Wang has teaching experience in Building Services Engineering including: Building Services Systems, Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer Analysis, Gas and Electrical Services, Principles and Practical of Low Carbon Buildings.

Teaching interests include:

  • Thermal Comfort
  • Ventilation
  • Occupant Behaviour
  • Building Performance Simulation and Monitoring
  • Sensor Technology and Measurement Systems
  • Building Automation and Control Engineering.

Dr Wang's current activities involve running the LSBU research program for the Balanced Energy Network (BEN) project at LSBU. BEN is an Innovate UK funded project going from 2016-2018. It is an advanced energy network that delivers heating, cooling, and electricity in a way that balances cost and carbon emissions. It consists of linking two LSBU campus buildings with a ground temperature water pipework. It also uses two boreholes drilled 100m down to the chalk aquifer to regulate the temperature of the network. The network works with a demand-side response aggregator. 

Selected projects:

  • Balanced Energy Network (BEN), Innovate UK
  • Active-LIVing Envelopes (ALIVE), EPSRC
  • FOS/BOS New School Building Project with Passive House Standard, German Federal Environment Foundation (DBU AZ 26170/02-25)
  • Diedorf Public School Building Project with Plus-Energy Standard, German Federal Environment Foundation (DBU AZ 29892/02-25)
  • Energy Storage Lab Project, ZAE Bayern and PTJ (Projekttraeger Juelich)
  • Future Building Project: Built Environment Prediction in Highly Energy-Efficient Buildings with Functional Green Plant Walls, German Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affair and Spatial Development (BBSR)
