He currently serves on Molten Salts Advisory Group of UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Royal Society Net Zero Panel and IChemE Publication Medal Assessment Panel, and recently led a Royal Society briefing note on heating and cooling in Climate Change: Science and Solutions. Professor Ding invented liquid air energy storage technology and led the initial stage of technology developments (commercialised by Highview Power). He developed composite phase change materials for thermal energy storage and associated large-scale manufacture technologies, leading to large scale commercial applications with a total installation of >300MW / >1.5GWh so far (Jinhe Energy). His work on passively cooled container technology has been on large scale commercial demonstration for cold chain applications (CRRC). His work has been recognised by the election to Fellow of Royal Academy of Engineering (2020); IChemE Clean Energy Medal (2021); IChemE Global Awards in three categories of Energy, Research Project and Outstanding Achievement (2019); Distinguished Energy Storage Individual Award (Beijing International Energy Storage and Expo, 2018); and Energy & Environment Award and Technology and Innovation Grand Prix Award (‘The Engineer’, 2011). He currently serves as an associate editor of Energy Storage and Saving (Elsevier) and Discovery Energy (SpringerNature), and serves on editorial boards Journals of Energy Storage (Wiley), Thermal Science (Springer), and Particuology (Elsevier).
