I am the project director of the rEV Index, which has just been released. Produced by Economist Impact and supported by bp, the index assesses 40 UK regions and subnations on their readiness for electric vehicles (EVs), and compares the UK's scores with those of leading EV markets—including China and European countries.
I am excited to announce the launch of Economist Impact's The Sustainability Project as a new kind of platform for engagement, analysis and debate, convening and actively engaging global stakeholders with the power to effect real change. And this real change is urgently needed.
On October 13th I will moderate a World Ocean Summit Insight Hour that will focus on the role of ship and cargo owners in adopting alternative fuels and alternative propulsion to reduce emissions. Speakers will discuss the economics of alternative fuels, retrofitting ships and upgrading bunkering infrastructure, and how to achieve scale.
