Energy Systems Analyst
Mohd Adnan Khan has joined the Transition Accelerator as an energy system analyst to help design pathways towards the establishment of a sustainable energy future. Adnan has a PhD in Material Science and Engineering and is passionate about working on renewable energy systems and contributing to the development of a future hydrogen economy. He has over 8 years of industrial and academic experience leading research teams across the value chain of technology development and commercialization, driving innovation, and fostering collaboration among industry, government and academia. He has worked on development of electrochemical systems, spanning fundamental catalyst development, material characterization, reactor design, and pilot-scale demonstrations. He has also performed techno-economic and life-cycle analysis of pathways to produce, transport and use green/blue hydrogen and various other renewable fuels/chemicals. He hopes his work will lead to the spin-out of consortia led projects, get change moving on the ground and help drive Canada towards a net-zero future.
