We make transport more efficient by measuring, modelling, and reducing the environmental impacts and energy needs of vehicles.
We do this for fleet operators, for policymakers, and for technology and fuel suppliers. And we do it through education, research, evaluation, demonstration and implementation. A typical project falls into one of five categories (but please bring us one that doesn’t):
- For the fleet owner Working to reduce costs, improve efficiency, manage risks, make better use of data, understand alternatives, evaluate the business case, and plan and implement change.
- For the policy maker Ensuring transport policy will reduce pollution, reduce climate change (carbon), and make the most efficient use of energy (fuel). To do that, you have to understand vehicles and energy intimately.
- For vehicle and fuel suppliers Assessing the potential market size and best market strategy by understanding the complex transport and freight industries, analysing consumer behaviour, and knowing the policy/regulatory/pricing levers that change these.
- For industry investment Designing and coordinating trials so that all aspects of a new product, vehicle or fuel are properly understood, evaluated and explained.
- For knowledge (everyone) Writing information papers, program material, and publications that demystify technology and explain the important stuff – usually the implications.
