The transition to electric vehicles and the broader transformation of the transport sector is an increasingly important area for Baringa. We are delighted that Natasha Patel has joined us as a Director, and will help us continue to grow our work on Electric Vehicles, and the broader agenda of decarbonisation of transport, and e-mobility. Natasha specialises in working with clients across the energy, automotive, investment and infrastructure sector where she evaluates the impact of electric and alternate-fuelled vehicles, autonomous technology, and mobility-as-a-service business models on her clients’ strategies. Her background in oil and gas, utilities and nuclear is a great addition to our focus on the intersection between e-mobility and the broader energy system.
Natasha Patel, Director at Baringa, comments, "I am excited about the road ahead here at Baringa. Decarbonising transportation is a key challenge for many industries that don’t traditionally work with or talk to each other, and Europe’s decarbonisation aspirations now need to be put into action. Baringa’s breadth across key sectors and depth of understanding of the overlapping themes of Energy Transition, Mobility, Climate Change and specific sector disruptions means that we are well positioned to support organisations across the ecosystem to work together and really drive change toward a net zero society."
Oliver Rix, Partner at Baringa, says, "Baringa is ideally positioned to support clients in assessing the impacts and realising the opportunities of low carbon vehicles and their interaction with the broader energy system. We have been on an exciting journey growing our work in this space over the last six years, with policy makers, energy retailers, network businesses, oil and gas players, fleet managers, and the automotive industry. We are excited to welcome Natasha to help us broaden and deepen our offerings and client work in this critical space."
