Expert advice for the implementation of effective transport technology 

Ricardo helps clients in the transport industry explore the implications of disruption to existing business models caused by new technologies and climate policy. Our expertise covers:

  • All modes: Road, rail, aviation, maritime.
  • All fuels/energy carriers: Electric, hybrid, natural gas, hydrogen, biofuels etc

We have a deep understanding of the transport and climate change policy landscape globally, including regulations on fuel economy, air quality, safety, fuel quality standards and carbon pricing.

To support our work, we use bespoke modelling tools including the Sustainable Transport Model (SULTAN) which we developed to analyse the potential impact of different technologies, policy pathways for all modes of transport and the development of sustainable mobility strategies.
