Hello

My name is Omid and I am one of the co-founders and CEO at Remedium. I am also a Research Associate in Thermo-Physical and Thermochemical Energy Storage at the University of Cambridge Engineering Department Energy Group. I have received my PhD in Engineering from the University of Cambridge, specializing in carbon capture and grid-scale electricity storage.

My Story

At Remedium, I am mostly focusing on developing thermodynamic and economic models of our technology including but not limited to carbon capture battery and calcium looping technology. As the CEO, I am also involved in proposal preparation, customer discovery calls, and discussion with potential partners and investors. At my role as a Research Associate at the University of Cambridge, I carry out theoretical and experimental research on potential grid-scale electricity storage solutions.


I started my career by joining NanoSUN in October 2020 as a research and development engineer where I worked on cutting-edge research on hydrogen storage, distribution, and dispensing. I was part of a very successful team that won several awards and funding. At the R&D department, I was involved in developing a game changing cooling technology for hydrogen stations (funded by Innovate UK) from its inception to prototype development. Developing a new idea and progressing its TRL from 1 to 7 in a span of 2 years is a valuable experience that I acquired during my time at NanoSUN and brought to my role at Remedium as the CEO.

 
I have received my PhD in Engineering from University of Cambridge, working under the supervision of Dr. Stuart Scott. During my PhD, I investigated chemical looping as an alternative grid-scale electricity storage solution. Chemical looping, where a metal oxide cycles between two oxidation states, is not a new topic of research. Its principal applications have been for burning fuel and producing oxygen. It has, however, never been investigated as a large-scale electricity storage solution. My research showed the significant potential of this technology as compared to other viable options such that my supervisor and I managed to get a £1,070,287 funding from EPSRC to continue the work and build a prototype (Link). 

In addition to my PhD and industrial research experience, I have conducted research on carbon capture, oxygen production, concentrated solar power technology, different power generation cycles, cooling and refrigeration cycles, Photovoltaic and Photovoltaic-thermal collectors, thermal energy storage, and desalination systems and published several scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals.
