Yasmin Ali

Engineer and author of Power Up: An Engineer's Adventures into Sustainable Energy
Yasmin Ali is a chemical engineer, dedicated to developing renewable energy projects. Having worked in coal and gas fired power stations, oil and gas, district heating systems, and energy innovation, Yasmin transitioned away from fossil fuels into more sustainable energy systems over the course of her career. Yasmin's new book, Power Up: An Engineer’s Adventures into Sustainable Energy, takes us on a journey across the globe to reveal the bigger picture behind renewable energy, from solar panel farms shimmering in the deserts, to power stations hidden deep in the mountains. We discover where we get energy from, how it is moved and used around the world – and why we need to understand the whole system if we want to transition towards a clean, green future. Yasmin has given over a hundred talks about engineering and energy, written for the BBC and Metro, featured in TV and radio programmes and completed a British Science Association Media Fellowship with the BBC's Science Unit. In recognition of her public engagement work, she has been awarded and shortlisted for multiple industry awards, including the 2020 Women’s Engineering Society’s top 50 female engineers in sustainability.
