The global economy is greatly shaped by the transformed energy landscape and emergent manufacturing technologies. Manufacturing, being a heavy energy consumer, requires innovative means of energy supply to power the new generation of manufacturing processes. Any manufacturing processes with poor energy efficiency lose competitiveness in the global market. While all the revolutionary progress in energy systems is rooted in and enabled by the manufacturing sector, and renewable energy can only be sustainable as the manufacturing process. The talk presents a preliminary study on the nexus of sustainable energy and manufacturing in alignment with the global effort for achieving 100% clean and renewable transition for all sectors.

Bio: Prof Kang Li is currently a Chair of Smart Energy Systems at the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University of Leeds. He received PhD degree in Control Engineering from Shanghai Jiaotong University in 1995 and awarded DSc from Queen’s University Belfast in 2015 for his work on nonlinear system identification. Prior to his current appointment, he was a Professor of Intelligent Systems and Control at Queen’s University Belfast. His research interests cover nonlinear system modelling, identification, and control, and bio-inspired computational intelligence, with applications to sustainable energy and intelligent manufacturing. His work on the development of minimal-invasive energy monitoring and analytic system used in several industrial sectors has won several awards. Dr Li published over 150 journal papers with over 10 prizes and awards. His international collaboration on tackling the global challenges in energy and manufacturing has led to the establishment of the government funded UK-China University Consortium on Engineering Education and Research, one of the highlights in the UK-China high-level people to people dialogue held in London in December 2017.
