Welcome to the New Energy Future Series
The world is on the verge of a major upheaval in how energy is produced and consumed. This will fundamentally reshape not only the energy industry but also many other aspects of economic activity and everyday life.
Long-established energy businesses will be challenged by the shift to a new paradigm, as will policymakers and many consumers, particularly those who are themselves major players in industry. Some will find their business models disrupted, but we believe this is also a time of great opportunity for those that prepare adequately.
The New Energy Future is a series of white papers, written by principals from the Advisian team, that aims to brief readers on major issues arising from the global energy transition. This second chapter of the series explores how the uptake of electric vehicles will affect transport markets and paints a picture of what the transport energy supply is likely to look like in the near future.
I hope you find this white paper enlightening and are encouraged by the possibilities it presents, not just for a changed world, but for a better one.
