Climate change advisory for transportation and energy sectors

CPCS finds climate change mitigation and adaptation solutions for better, cleaner transportation and power systems, assets, and services.

Our climate change advisory services span developing pathways to reduce emissions in transport and energy systems, accelerating electrification of passenger and freight transport, preparing strategies for lower-carbon supply chains, mobilizing climate finance for infrastructure projects including PPPs, and advising governments seeking stronger policies, regulatory and institutional frameworks to deliver and run sustainable transportation and energy systems.

We specialize in strategies for:

  • Decarbonizing all modes of transportation and logistics
  • Increasing renewables in the energy sector
  • Increasing access to climate finance

Integrated services:

  • CPCS delivers practical pathways and provides technical assistance to public and private organizations around the world.
  • CPCS has the full spectrum of expertise in-house: environmental, financial, economic, operational, commercial, legal, and regulatory to fully grasp what’s at stake and provide neutral, actionable, and evidence-based insights for decision-making.

What we do:

  • Prepare e-mobility strategies for new technologies and business models
  • Assess policy options and trade-offs to reach net zero transportation targets
  • Develop renewable energy sector roadmaps
  • Help multilateral development banks and financing institutions design climate finance facilities and develop a pipeline of climate-smart infrastructure projects
  • Design financing strategies to match climate financing and market opportunities
  • Help governments make policy decisions based on evidence and in-depth analyses
 

From evidence to action

No place for climate inaction when it’s “code red for humanity” and damage toll worsening

The world’s global transport and energy infrastructure systems are huge greenhouse gas emitters.

Consequently, we must act intelligently to improve them and increase our odds of collectively limiting their negative impact on what’s unfolding:

  • accelerating and intensifying climate-related disasters (warming seas, heatwaves, floods, cyclones, droughts)
  • widespread and severe losses and damages to humans and nature
  • increasing compound hazards impacting water and food security, infrastructure, health, economies, and culture

The signal is loud and clear. Even the United Nations starkly described the findings of a recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change as “code red for humanity.”

If this warning wasn’t enough, the UN said following the 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) that “countries have failed to decisively move away from fossil fuels” and there’s an “urgent need for deep, rapid and sustained reductions in global greenhouse gas emissions to limit global warming to 1.5°C.”

Staying within the 1.5 degrees Celsius warming threshold aspired to in the Paris Agreement is about more than having ambitious targets like reducing global GHG emissions by 45% by 2030 and reaching net zero by 2050. It’s also about how we’ll get there.

We must be smart in how we design and deploy infrastructure systems, services, and assets. We need informed decision makers and policymakers, sound strategies, effective execution, accountability, and practical, evidence-based pathways.

CPCS knows how to help clients develop solutions to achieve more sustainable transportation and energy systems.
