Research Highlights

Dr. SU Bin (B. Su) joined the Energy Studies Institute in September 2011 after finishing his PhD in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the National University of Singapore. He is now leading the energy modelling programme in the institute, and actively involved in many energy modelling related projects commissioned by government agencies. He received his Master’s degree in Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics from the Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and two Bachelor degrees, a BSc in Statistics and BEng in Electronic Information Engineering, from the University of Science and Technology of China.

Dr Su is currently Programme Director of the Consortium for “Study on Singapore’s Energy and Decarbonization Pathways” funded by National Research Foundation and National Climate Change Secretariat, Singapore. His main research interest is energy and environmental systems modeling and analysis, with particular emphasis on energy efficiency, climate change, benchmarking, embodied energy and emissions, carbon footprint, carbon pricing, emissions trading and rebound effect. Dr. Su is presently Associate Editor of Energy Economics (ISSN: 0140-9883), Editorial Board Member of Reports on Economics and Finance (ISSN: 2367-7805) and Journal of Environmental Economics (CN42-1881/F), and referee for more than 50 international peer-reviewed journals. Recently, he edited the books on “China’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation: Sectoral Analysis” and “China’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation: Household Behaviour, Legislation, Regional Analysis and Impacts” (Springer, 2016).
