Lau joined the ADE team as Research Manager for ACE Research in April of 2020. His role focuses on undertaking research across an array of themes including the four main, supported technologies by ADE; CHP, DSR, Heat Networks and Energy Efficiency.
Before joining ADE, Lau spent 3 years in the conservation and capacity building sector working in international development. As previous Head of Operations for Frontier, The Society for Environmental Exploration, Lau spent most of his time managing and supervising the running of research-driven environment programmes in remote locations of the Earth, monitoring some of the world’s most endangered and fragile habitats.
After spending time focusing his efforts supporting less economically developed countries, Lau decided to shift his energy from conservation of natural resources to conservation of energy by joining ADE; advocating for the use of clean energy sources, improving efficiency and reducing energy poverty, which affects the physical and mental well-being of thousands of UK citizens every year.
Lau has a BSc in Politics, Global Studies and Journalism from The University of Winchester and a MSc in Managing Contemporary Global Issues with Environment & Development, also from the University of Winchester.
