Dr Phil Wu (吴越) is a researcher in Sustainable Energy within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Originally from a material science background, Phil obtained MSc in Sustainable Energy Technologies from the University of Southampton in 2011. His research project in energy storage for solar photovoltaic systems has contributed to the collaboration between the university and local industry, and demonstrated the feasibility of using a new type of batteries for storing electricity from solar systems. He was awarded PhD in Low Carbon City Assessment from the same department in 2016. His PhD research has contributed to a number of research programmes including the Liveable Cities project and the research outcomes are used by UK cities such as Southampton City Council.

Phil is currently continuing his post-doctoral research in the Liveable Cities project, which is a 5-year research programme jointly supported by 4 UK leading universities – Universities of Southampton, Birmingham, UCL, and Lancaster. His research topic is to investigate the possibility and impacts of reducing carbon dioxide emissions within a city. His research outcomes have been presented to Southampton City Council, influencing the policy making process of the city. Some of his findings have been published on online-based GIS (geographic information systems) portals, providing access for the general public to understand the energy saving potential of their homes.
