E-mobility is at the nexus of two of Nathan’s key focus areas – energy and transport. Nathan is deeply involved in the e-mobility transformation both domestically and internationally.
Transportation electrification or e-mobility is an emerging global force. While electric passenger cars such as the Tesla Model S and the Chevrolet Bolt are the most well-known element of e-mobility, other important elements include a range of electric vehicles (EVs) such as motorcycles, buses and trucks, and even forklifts, ships, and airplanes. The International Energy Agency’s (IEA) baseline forecast is for an increase from the current level of roughly three million vehicles to well over 125 million in 2030. This forty-fold increase represents a compound average growth rate (CAGR) of more than 30%.
The transport sector accounts for roughly one-quarter of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and both the absolute and relative amount of transport emissions are projected to increase significantly over the next two decades. Even at the substantial growth rate noted above, EVs will have only a relatively modest market share in 2030. To make a serious dent in transport GHG emissions and help address other important social issues, it will take more — a true e-mobility transformation. As the World Bank says: “eMobility is, at its core, a disruptive transition. That is a good thing.” Nathan’s focus is on applying our core analysis and planning skills to accelerate this transformation and ensure that the potential benefits of e-mobility are fully realized for all.
