Dr. Nancy E. Ryan

eMobility Advisors

Dr. Nancy E. Ryan has spent her career working for effective, data-driven regulatory solutions in the electricity, transportation, and water industries.  She brings a 360-degree perspective to her work, grounded in her experience as a regulator, consultant, environmental advocate, and academic. At eMobility Advisors, she helps businesses devise and execute regulatory strategies to enter and thrive in the dynamic markets for electric-drive vehicles, charging services, and vehicle-grid-integration solutions.  Her clients range from technology start-ups to established global enterprises.

Previously, Nancy was a partner at Energy + Environmental Economics (E3), where she built an international transportation electrification practice that provided custom analytics and advisory services for public agencies, utilities, automakers, and environmental advocacy groups.  From 2006-13, Nancy served at the California Public Utilities Commission in several roles, including Commissioner, Deputy Executive Director, and energy advisor to the CPUC President.  At the CPUC, Nancy became intimately familiar with regulatory processes and how businesses succeed—and fail—in influencing them.  She directed staff teams and oversaw stakeholder processes for dockets on transportation electrification, smart meters, energy storage, long-term resource planning, and implementation of California’s Cap and Trade and the Low Carbon Fuel Standard programs in the electric sector. Nancy also led energy, water and climate policy initiatives in the California Office of Environmental Defense Fund from 2000-2005. 

Nancy earned a Ph.D. in Economics from UC Berkeley, where she also taught applied economics at the Goldman School of Public Policy for a dozen years.  A nationally recognized thought leader, Nancy speaks frequently on the economics and public policy of the low-carbon transition.

The Future of Infrastructure: The Electrified, Interconnected Interstate

Freight infrastructure, including road transport, is the lifeblood of the United States economy and a subset of critical infrastructure. Early-stage electrification plans and proposed market solutions for essential and heavily trafficked domestic freight corridors in the United States have a long way to go. Regional planning efforts need to be coordinated to ensure that a unified, right-sized network is created. 

INF and its partner ecosystem are redefining what the future of an electrified, interconnected interstate can look like. Their plans for zero-emission charging infrastructure for medium and heavy-duty trucking will enable widespread adoption by producing the greatest co-benefits for road transport stakeholders. Enter the “Evergreen Charging System,” a win for investors, utilities, the freight industry, and the planet. 

Join this panel with INF Associates, Prologis, and eMobility Advisors to learn:

  • How the “Evergreen Charging System” addresses pain points of infrastructure costs, reliability, total cost of ownership, permitting and interconnection timelines, disaster resilience, national security, and more.
  • How policy, development, and supply chains/third-party logistics/real estate/energy solutions can work together toward a sustainable future for medium- and heavy-duty transportation decarbonization.
  • Learn how partnership is the new leadership and how collaboration of research, data, and development leads to the best and most rapidly deployable solution.
  • Learn from eMobility Advisors how the US is developing a National Freight Strategy for the Electrification of Medium and Heavy-Duty Vehicles and how states like California are pursuing Energization Timelines to support and solve the short-term and long-term challenges.
