Transport Energy Outlook Service

“Tammy is one of the best when it comes to seeing and understanding the entire liquid transportation fuels landscape. Her perspectives are insightful, sometimes challenging, and most often steps ahead of current thinking. We will continue looking to Transport Energy Strategies for point of view shaping insights and analysis.” – ICM, Inc.

What Is the Transport Energy Outlook?

A membership-based service that provides policy, market and technology intelligence and research analysis on transport energy issues by providing original in-depth monthly reports and posts, on-demand webinars and Q&A support for members.

Your business depends on knowing the future of transport energy: policies, technologies and market dynamics.

You need to assess the ongoing global threats – and opportunities – of policies and market issues for transport energy policies such as low carbon fuels, sustainable aviation fuels, hydrogen and  electrification. And you need to do it cost-effectively.

You need quality intelligence and analysis, another point of view outside the mainstream and a resource you can rely on do your job effectively and to help your company succeed in the marketplace. You need a resource you can turn to to get answers to your questions quickly.

Did you know that:

  • Climate-change mitigation from transport presents a $3.6 trillion USD investment opportunity, according to the International Finance Corporation?
  • Five jurisdictions have established low carbon fuel policies?
  • The global automotive fleet is expected to grow 135% through 2050, and 90% of this growth will come from Asia, Latin America and Africa?
  • Almost 60 countries have developed or will be developing biofuels programs such as blend mandates and fiscal incentives?
  • Over 40 countries, most recently the U.S., have developed hydrogen roadmaps?
  • More than 40 countries have implemented or plan to implement mandatory fuel economy standards, several with a GHG component?
  • More than 25 cities and/or countries have taken actions to ban or limit the use of internal combustion engines?
  • At least 13 countries have programs to support zero emission vehicle markets?
  • Global transportation-related energy demand is projected to increase by about 25%, according to ExxonMobil?

These are hugely challenging times in the transport energy industry.

The Transport Energy Outlook service provides you with the in-depth intelligence and analysis you need to assess threats and opportunities in your industry, develop strategies, prepare for strategic moves in the marketplace, anticipate and plan for future market opportunities and disruptions, and watch what the competitors are doing.

What You Get in The Outlook Service

With a membership, you’ll get original, in-depth analysis delivered to your inbox, quarterly webinars and reports on emerging trends in transport energy, and support on questions with a timely turnaround. Deliverables include:

  • Monthly Research Reports: These reports provide original, in-depth research and analysis on key transport energy topics. The archive of past reports is also available to members.
  • Posts: Regular posts with unique market and policy insights and updates on key transport energy members.
  • Regular Newsletter: Delivered biweekly (with a break in the summer and around the Christmas holidays) that not only provides updates on research reports and posts but also includes competitive intelligence and curated content important to the membership.
  • On-Demand Webinars: Presented by me at least four times a year on a range of different transport energy topics covered in the service. I review trends, new research and analysis and take your questions. The webinar and presentation are posted to the members-only website.
  • Q&A Exclusively for Members: When members have questions, I’m there with a prompt response to help support their work.

You’ll have up-to-the-minute answers and insights on topics such as:

  • Developments in transport energies such as hydrogen, electrofuels, methanol, biofuels, advanced biofuels and other advanced fuels.
  • Efforts to lower the carbon intensity of fuels, achieve net zero and net negative fuel carbon intensity, such as Fit for 55 and the Inflation Reduction Act.
  • Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and low or no carbon shipping fuels.
  • State and national-level low carbon fuel standard (LCFS) policies.
  • The rise of electrification.
  • “Aspiration v. implementation” on transport energy policies.
  • Other clean fuels policies that are not necessarily low-carbon focused (there needs to be a recognition that not all countries, especially emerging economies, will be able to implement low carbon fuel and vehicle (LCFV) policies in the near and mid-term).
  • State and national-level ZEV policies and market penetration for both the light- and heavy-duty fleets.
  • Paris Agreement implementation and impact on transport energy policy.
  • Movements on passenger car and heavy-duty vehicle fuel economy standards.
  • Car bans, car-free days and “peak car” issues.
  • Air pollution policies that impact LCFVs positively or negatively.
  • Global connectivity, autonomy and ride-sharing developments.

A full listing of reports and posts for the service as of December 2022 are available here.

Why You Need This Service

Stakeholders in most industries tend to care, appropriately, about what’s happening in their own backyards. But, stakeholders, especially low carbon fuel producers, need to look beyond their backyards and at the bigger picture. It’s the one slice of the transport energy picture that needs to know what’s happening across the board: hydrogen, electrification, CCS, and so on. The Transport Energy Outlook service will help you do exactly that.

You can’t understand the full competitive landscape by only watching what’s happening in your own industry – you need to understand the full picture to assess both opportunities and threats. They’re both upon us. And that can be totally overwhelming!

Bottom line: Following the transport energy space, especially global low carbon fuels and vehicles, isn’t a “nice to have” – it’s a critical to know.

Not only do you need quality, reliable insight and analysis on a timely basis, but you need it from someone you can trust who has a broad network you can draw upon. I leverage my extensive global network in the auto, biofuels, refining, alternative fuels and technology industries — in addition to governments and NGOs — to bring you insights you can’t get anywhere else.

The existing member base for this service is cross-industry and I do not represent a particular stakeholder group’s interest or position. That helps make the work credible.  I cover cross-cutting issues that matter to the  industry. I spot and analyze important issues that have far-reaching consequences for the industries that are outside the media and industry echo-chamber, and I dig deep.

With my 25+ years of direct industry experience working on all these issues and my global network, I have the resources I need to bring you the insights you want at a reasonable cost.

Also, I’ve noticed there’s a gap in how transport energy issues are treated by other consultancies, trade groups and the media. For example:

  • There are few (if really, any) information sources currently available that take a holistic, balanced view of the transport energy space.
  • There are lots of news aggregators, plus media and trade organizations that cater to specific industries, but there’s not much in-depth analysis, especially outside the respective constituencies. Moreover, confirmation bias can be a powerful hindrance in seeing the issues clearly and getting the intelligence you need to make the best strategic decisions.
  • There is much coverage of breaking developments, but little context and explanation about what these events could mean for stakeholders. There is no bigger picture (and often not even a picture at all).
  • There is limited continuity covering long-range policy and market issues.
  • Issues are not covered on a global basis, so you have no sense of how the world is actually moving.
  • Larger firms may cover the fuels space either with different services that are too in-depth or too high-priced for what they provide OR there are gaps in their service coverage and the analysis of different transport energy issues are not integrated.

The Transport Energy Outlook service avoids these issues by providing insight and intelligence that provides explanation, context and continuity across a range of intersecting and critical transport energy issues. Issues are covered on an integrated and global basis, with a special focus on U.S. and European developments, given the fast-paced regulatory environment in both areas.
