Dr. Mohammad Sameti is a researcher in MaREI and currently working on green hydrogen energy, a partnership between UCC, DCU and NUIG as well as 25 industry companies, with the aim of cost-effective decarbonisation through large-scale implementation of hydrogen technologies in Ireland.
Mohammad is involved in several projects namely HyLIGHT, Green Hysland, and International Energy Agency ANNEX 37. He is exploring the optimisation of green hydrogen supply chains in Ireland as well as developing and implementing a hydrogen ecosystem for Mallorca in collaboration with a wide range of industrial and academic partners in Ireland, the UK, Spain, and Netherlands. The model includes short-, medium-, and long-term supply chain scenarios for green hydrogen in Ireland and Mallorca, considering different electricity supplies (onshore/offshore wind, PV, grid), energy end-uses, supply chain sizes, and geographical locations.
Mohammad received his PhD in mechanical engineering from Concordia University, Canada in 2018. His previous research was focused on optimization and modelling of district energy systems, integration of renewable energies, hybrid energy systems, thermodynamics cycles, and thermo-economic analysis. Those research areas were connected to IEA-ECES Annex 31 “Energy storage with Net Zero Energy Buildings and Districts: Optimization and Automation” and published as a part of it. Mohammad joined University College Dublin (UCD Energy Institute) in 2019 under Energy Systems Integration Partnership Programme (ESIPP) as a postdoctoral researcher working on diversification of gas end-use and supply. In that project, Mohammad investigated the potential of an integrated energy system taking into account the need for gas-fueled power stations. The proposed model explores future scenarios to complement wind and other renewable electricity sources in Ireland while at the same time covering seasonal peak domestic and industrial heating demands.
He also holds the position as an associate editor in Intelligent Buildings International published in Taylor and Francis as well as Frontiers in Thermal Engineering. He has co-authored more than 30 peer-reviewed, international publications in books, conferences, and journals including Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, Applied Energy, and Energy (for an up-to-date list of publications, see Google Scholar).
