Using Ammonia as a vector for moving low cost solar energy around the world


I am a 1st year PhD student in the university of Oxford studying engineering science. I’m mainly interested in understanding how ammonia can be used most efficiently as a spatial energy vector to set up new economies in nations with export renewable energy potential and to sustain the decarbonised economies of countries which need to import energy. Before starting my research I worked with Worley’s green hydrogen team in Australia, where we did the concept design for a number of hydrogen/ammonia projects that will hopefully move forward into later project stages in the next few years.
