As the Founder and CEO of Transport Energy Strategies, my consultancy provides market, policy and technology intelligence, research analysis and strategic advice consulting services to clients, including senior management teams and boards on a range of global transport energy issues.
I also advise clients through a member-based consulting service, the Transport Energy Outlook, which provides research analysis on global trends across a range of sectors, including refining, auto, engine, biofuels and alternative fuels. Competencies include low carbon fuels (e.g., ethanol, biodiesel, renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel), vehicle electrification, hydrogen, methanol, electrofuels and carbon capture.
I host the Fueling the Future of Transport podcast which features interviews with senior executives and thought leaders in the space. Check it out!
In short, there’s never been a more challenging time in energy and transport than now, but there’s also never been more opportunity to deliver sustainable solutions that drive real-world greenhouse gas emission reductions, shareholder value and innovation. Whether it’s low (and no) carbon fuels, sustainable aviation fuel, hydrogen and electrification among others, I help companies in these spaces take challenges and turn them into opportunities with sound competitive intelligence, policy advice, market analysis and technology evaluation.
With the coming of environment, social and governance (ESG) regulations, this has never been more important – the right strategy for the right time. This is what I help companies do. Transformational change is upon us, and I’m supporting clients by helping them develop internal business strategies to pivot and succeed. For the last 25+ years, my work has helped governments and companies chart a course toward real-world GHG emission reductions and air quality improvement, while successfully developing and entering new markets.
I am an expert on transport energy regulatory frameworks, compliance and policy issues in U.S., EU, China, India and Brazil. I have and continue to work with clients in the oil and auto industries, as well as other clients in the biofuels, fuel retailing, private equity, electrification, hydrogen and other alternative fuel industries.
I have worked all over the world for companies and governments including in the U.S., EU, Singapore, Zimbabwe, Australia, Japan, Australia, Brazil and El Salvador. I have advised the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), International Petroleum Industry Environmental Conservation Association (IPIECA), Energy Management Authority (EMA) of Singapore and Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the International Energy Agency (IEA), among others. I also have worked and help build multi-stakeholder coalitions to build support on various fuels issues.
I hold a J.D. from the Georgetown University Law Center and a B.S. from the University of Florida.
