Transportation Energy Institute

The Transportation Energy Institute is a non-advocacy research organization dedicated to studying transportation-energy. We consider “fuel” to be any type of energy being used to power a vehicle, and our research encompasses a breadth of issues affecting the vehicles and fuels markets.

Because of our non-advocacy approach, we are the most diverse organization in the fuels and vehicles markets. The Transportation Energy Institute creates a place in which stakeholders of all persuasions can come together to collaborate, share perspectives and commission objective research analyzing the challenges and opportunities facing the market.

About Transportation Energy Institute

Now, more than ever, there is so much going on in the transportation industry and so many points of view and objectives. We recognize that there is not just one road to the future of energy, decarbonization and transportation. That’s why Transportation Energy Institute takes a pragmatic, and constant assessment to all energy resources and how they can reduce emissions.

Charging Analytics Program

The Charging Analytics Program (CAP) is designed to help accelerate the return on investment for those installing and operating electric vehicle charging stations. It will continually collect and aggregate data from a wide variety of sources to create benchmark analyses of different charging facility types and designs to enhance the success of new station deployment.

The program will also evaluate markets throughout the nation to determine when they might be ready to support additional charging stations, based upon dozens of market-based criteria.


Environment, Social and Governance (ESG)

The importance of environment, social and governance (ESG) planning is growing by the day. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is expected to vote on moving forward with ESG rules (March 21, 2022) that will impact publicly and privately held companies. Driven by investors and financial institutions concerned with climate change risks and equity disparities, ESG reporting is a data-driven program that demands transparency in metrics as well as corporate future goals.
