Expertise and career highlights

Fahad has joined SFA as an Energy Analyst to help the Battery Metals and Materials Team develop and enhance its regional recycling and demand forecasts by chemistry type for battery electric vehicles, battery storage solutions for intelligent energy systems and new second-life applications, as well as portable electronics. He is also uniquely placed to assist the Green Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Team with his energy background.

Fahad has extensive AI and machine learning knowledge and a unique technical data science skillset, including neural network, time series prediction modelling, fuzzy logic hybrid systems, particle swarm optimisation, regression analysis, demand response and forecasting, and ETAP power management 380kV network generation, transmission and distribution, and renewable energy integration.

Fahad has a PhD from Brunel University through designing a new innovative smart energy generation system and demand response solution for Saudi Arabia’s 380kV transmission network. He worked with Saudi Arabia Electrical Company’s data to develop artificial intelligence models, regression modelling, power network, and planning tools to create a safe energy integration system comprising wind and solar farms to model accurate short and long-term energy demand forecasts.

Fahad completed his MSc in Engineering Management at Nottingham Trent University and has a BEng in Electrical Engineering from the University of South Wales in Cardiff, where he also focused his research on green power supply in modern applications.
