Wang's research is dedicated to sustainable renewable energy and an understanding of physical systems that involve interactions between energy production and the environment. This is of importance because renewable energy offers a promising way of diversifying the energy portfolio, and helping address the global issues of climate change, growing population, and energy security. A proper understanding of renewable energy production systems and their interaction with environment is essential for the design of relevant infrastructure and sustainable energy strategies at local, national and international scales.
