The International Energy Agency (IEA) is undertaking a new project on the future of road transport and the implications of automation, connectivity, electrification, and sharing (ACES), following up on its first comprehensive report on Digitalization & Energy. This new project will explore the potential trajectories and impacts of these transformations and aims to provide policy insights to steer developments that advance energy, climate, air quality, and other socioeconomic objectives. The key output of the project will be a policy insights publication in early 2019, as well as enhancing the modelling capabilities of the IEA Mobility Model.

To solicit strategic and expert input to the analysis, the IEA will convene an expert workshop in June to gather a select group of leading experts and decision makers from industry, academia, government, and civil society. Participants will discuss and debate key questions and issues around the future of road transport. 

Attendance is by invitation only. To facilitate a candid and productive discussion, the workshop will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
