The Wolfson Merit award will allow Professor Li to focus on mapping out the current energy network infrastructure across the UK, highlighting areas which most lend themselves to micro generation where individuals or communities can invest in wind turbines or solar panels.
Professor Li said: "A key element of any solution to decarbonise our electricity generation will be micro generation, where individual households use technologies such as solar panels, wind turbines, combined heat and power methods and home energy storage to generate some of their own power from renewable sources, which they will consume and store when the price is at its cheapest."
The five year award is funded by the Wolfson Foundation and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.
The Wolfson Foundation is a grant-making charity established in 1955.
Funding is given to support excellence.
