Our research focuses on accelerating the transition to smart cities through integrated assimilation and deployment of several emerging renewable energy technologies. Photovoltaic roof tiles as renewable electric powertrains can be integrated with grid-connected rechargeable lithium-ion battery storage system as well as off-the-grid use system. Our research efforts include: deployment of a smart solar photovoltaic building unit (PVBU), monitoring and control of solar generation and energy consumption, software for Levelized Cost of Electricity (LOCE) data analytics, solar PV devices efficiency simulation and financial engineering to avoid reliance on government’s subsidies.
