Gavin joined Eunomia in September 2019 and is Eunomia’s lead for Sustainable Future Transport.
His previous experience at TRL Ltd and the University of Southampton includes projects supporting local authorities and government agencies to understand the opportunities to improve the sustainability of transportation within their jurisdictions, and develop and implement tailored solutions to meet local, national and international policy goals. He is a specialist in the development of environmentally and economically sustainable freight, fleets and supply chains through the use of computational optimisation models, accompanied by his extensive knowledge and experience of soft- and hard- engineering solutions available. In addition to this, he also has in-depth experience of a broad range of areas within the field of Transportation, including: low- and zero- emissions vehicle technologies, new and emerging modes and technologies (HGV platooning, connected and autonomous vehicles, drones, freight-based hyperloop concepts), Mobility as a Service.
Recent relevant projects include directing the independent monitoring and evaluation of several real-world low- and zero- emissions vehicle technologies nationwide. His role on such projects was to provide technical assurance and obtain consensus from multiple stakeholders (original equipment manufacturers such as DAF, Nissan and Volvo; vehicle operators, project managers, local- and government authorities /agencies) for the agreed assessment methodologies. Gavin has also developed a number of innovative approaches and frameworks (including a method to undertake delivery and servicing plans (DSPs)) to evaluate and manage freight and supply chains in a more environmentally-friendly manner. He has held positions as a technical advisor on the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership’s Commercial Vehicle Working Group. Whilst at TRL he led innovative research programmes, resulting in calls for Government action on key issues affecting air quality and congestion, such as the Future of Freight.
