PA’s Future Mobility experts work with businesses to anticipate the future, champion innovation, and lead the energy transition and future of mobility to unlock new potential. As part of the UK government’s ‘greenprint’ for building a net zero transport system by 2050, PA teamed up with the Royal College of Art to design a chargepoint for the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles that will help accelerate the adoption of zero-emission road transport. From leading the transformation to green energy with Ørsted, Denmark’s largest energy producer, to accelerating electric bus deployment with AMP Capital to reduce carbon emissions in Latin America, PA’s experts provide critical support and advice amid global uncertainty and change in order to preserve valuable resources and enhance environmental outcomes for societies around the world.
