Global market intelligence company Interact Analysis has joined CALSTART, a California-based nonprofit organisation focused on the clean transportation industry. The two organisations will work together to further CALSTART’s goal of bringing government and private sector organisations together to build a high-tech clean-transportation sector that creates jobs and curbs climate change.

To inform their work, CALSTART has already been using a range of Interact Analysis research reports including: hybrid & electric trucks & busesoff-highway vehicles, and powertrain components. In particular, the data in these reports will support CALSTART’s case as they continue to educate on and promote policies in the US and globally on incentives and rebates for zero-emission vehicles. Low/zero-emission transport is one of Interact Analysis’s main research areas.

John Boesel, president and CEO of CALSTART, comments: “It’s great to have Interact Analysis onboard, and we have already used their research findings in our work for zero emission vehicles and policy here in the US. It’s extremely important for us and our membership to have regularly updated granular data and informed projections on future market activity, particularly as we expand our global activities. We look forward to a long-term partnership which will be fruitful for CALSTART, Interact Analysis, and our members.”  

Alastair Hayfield, research director at Interact Analysis, says: “Working with CALSTART is a new and exciting direction for us. We have been producing industry reports on the green transport sector for market-leading companies for a long time, and our knowledge of the topic is second-to-none. Right now, the clean transport sector, particularly battery EV technology, is coming of age and we are entering into an era of mass adoption. Transport is responsible for one third of all global emissions. This has to change. We are pleased to be able to work with CALSTART and hope this outstanding organisation will be able to apply our market intelligence to the wider clean tech transport industry to further its aims. We intend to take a proactive role as a CALSTART member, so look out for our presence at their events.”
