A Mobility and Energy Multi-Client Study

The challenge of simultaneously meeting growing global energy demand and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions has created the platform for a radical energy transition. The transportation sector, where oil demand has become increasingly concentrated, is at the heart of this transition.

In the latest iteration of our Reinventing Transportation series, Reinventing the Aircraft and the Ship (RTA/S), IHS Markit has turned its attention to the future of aviation and shipping, both high-growth, oil-thirsty sectors that are increasingly attracting the gaze of policymakers.

Key questions addressed:

  • To what extent will societal change, technology and increased operational efficiency offset growth in demand for aviation and shipping?
  • Will regulation become technology-forcing?
  • Which propulsion technologies will emerge as winners?
  • Which fuels will be the most cost and carbon competitive?
  • Who will invest in infrastructure to supply fuels?
