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.
This issue of the Oxford Energy Forum follows on from OIES’s third transport workshop, held in Oxford in late 2019. The workshop focused on three factors that are likely to influence the uptake of electric vehicles (EVs) in the transport fleet: government policy incentives, consumer choice, and the need for consumer-centric business models. EVs are […]
The number of Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs) worldwide continues to grow though there are major differences between countries both in terms of levels of penetration and underlying drivers. NGVs have some environmental advantages over petroleum-based fuels – particularly if biomethane is available – and, in many markets, are cheaper. However, the prospects for NGVs in […]
The Oxford Institute for Energy Studies held its second workshop on the impact of disruptive change in the transport sector, titled ‘Electricity, Electric Vehicles and Public Policy’. Participants included experts from the electricity, oil, auto, mobility, finance and technology sectors. The workshop focused on investigating the prospects for deep EV penetration. The focus was on […]
