Biography Dr. Dallia Ali is a Lecturer at RGU. Evaluator for the European Commission Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA), and Reviewer for IET Renewable Power Generation Journal, American Journal of Electrical Power & Energy Systems and Elsevier. She serves on the ETP Hydrogen Theme steering committee with emphasis on Hydrogen Distribution and her expertise has been included in the ETP Scotland's HEI hydrogen capability document to support the Scottish Government's Hydrogen Policy and feed into their upcoming Hydrogen Action Plan.

Dr Alis is a member of APPG (All Party Parliamentary Group) on Hydrogen and a member of the RGU Energy Working Group leading the “H2 & Fuel Cell” Subgroup, to support the university's energy transition.

She has written for the university’ Communications team an article on the university energy savings during lockdown and was interviewed by the Press & Journal on “what a hydrogen production plant in Aberdeen could be worth to the area”.
Dr. Dallia has contributed to significant lectures and fora, presented and chaired sessions at conferences and served as a peer reviewer for many conferences and journals. Her research interests include electrical power systems modernization, energy efficiency, implementing renewable energy technologies and green hydrogen storage for decarbonizing the electricity, heat, industrial and transport sectors.

She had a successful submission in the COP26 Network’s Innovation Showcase Theme: Energy transitions UK Universities. She was member of the organizing committee of the SPE Workshop “Hydrogen Role in Fuelling the Energy Transition on 16th & 17th of November 21 and has chaired Session 1“Towards a Zero Carbon Hydrogen-based Energy Economy - role of H2 in the energy transition”. She has contributed and presented in the H2 Round Table Event “Our H2 Future” in Italy with Siemens, Wood, OGTC on Tuesday 8th June 2021 and now invited to contribute again to the June 2022 one. She has organised, chaired and was one of the speakers of a national level seminar “Renewable Hydrogen Economy” in collaboration with IET, HYLANTIC (EU) and Aberdeen City Council in September 2020.

She has published a book on “Solar Powered Desalination” and Book Chapter on “Hydrogen Energy Storage” in the "Energy Storage Devices".

Dr. Dallia has established links with other institutes, industry, Scottish Government and Aberdeen City Council which accordingly allowed her to support both teaching and research by integrating industrial visits and external speakers within her modules, as well as developing joint research projects. She has developed a joint study with The James Hutton Institute (JHI) to investigate PV-H2 configuration feasibility for the HydroGlen project. She was recently invited by Global E & C to visit their facilities to develop some mutually beneficial projects. She has also been involved recently in a number of innovation vouchers as well as joint research applications which included the NPRP-13, NPRP14, Carbon Trust (Integrator Programme) Hydrogen Production from Offshore Wind (HyPrOW), as well as strategic equipment and capital bid applications to contribute to the university Energy Transition Program. She has also advanced the power lab capabilities and restored the fuel cell lab for teaching & research purposes.

Prior to working in RGU, she was a Visiting Associate Professor at the Executive Education Centre of Hamad bin Khalifa University (HBKU), Visiting Associate Professor at Texas A&M University in Qatar and Chair of R&D for Monsson Group in Qatar. Dr Dallia has been involved in the launching the first in Qatar Reverse Osmosis Water Desalination Plant powered by Solar Energy and has been a member of the Swedish Delegation in the “Green Desalination Initiative between the State of Qatar and Kingdom of Sweden”. She has been on the organizing committee of the First Workshop in Qatar on Smart Grid and Renewable Energy (SGRE 2015) and chaired the “Energy Storage” session.
