Building on our annual Transport Workshops, OIES will be developing a research module on the future of energy in transport, which analyses how policies to decarbonize transport, including the provision of incentives to alter consumer behaviour, the passing of regulations aimed at intra-modal and inter-modal shifts, and the rise of alternative fuels and technological options, among other factors, are transforming the sector and challenging the dominance of oil. The research will cover different transport modes, including not just passenger vehicles and light commercial transport, but also the so-called “hard-to-abate” transport modes: short and long distance road freight, marine shipping and aviation. The module will draw upon OIES’s strong regional expertise to examine the implications of changes in transport policy, technology, and regulation across multiple regions.
In this podcast James Henderson talks to Mohua Mukherjee, Senior Research Fellow at the OIES talk about the electric mobility market in India, with a particular focus on the “budget” end. The podcast highlights the difference between large energy transition assets such as solar parks, wind farms and geothermal projects on the one hand, and […]
Around 99 per cent of vehicles running on India’s roads are powered by internal combustion engines running on fossil fuels (petrol, diesel, and some CNG). The passenger car is still a largely aspirational product for around one hundred million newly middle-class Indians (20 million families). Given the current, still very low per capita car ownership […]
This paper aims to examine consumer behaviour towards, and the willingness to adopt, ‘green steel’ in the automotive sector. Semi-structured interviews were held with experts from global, regional and country-specific industry associations and automakers. This paper appraises potential demand for green steel within different vehicle types (based both on size and powertrain) and shows that manufacturers […]
