Abul Hassan

U.S. Lead, Zero Emission Mobility
Wood PLC – Resilient Environments (RE)

Mr. Hassan is an accomplished Project Manager and Administrator with leadership oversight and responsibility over multiple public agencies in the U.S. throughout his career.

Among his many accomplishments Mr. Hassan was an early adapter to Electric Vehicle Buses (EVB) having worked extensively on design and testing with Proterra (PTRA) for optimal performance in cold weather conditions in Anchorage, Alaska.  His findings subsequently facilitated the ability of other transportation agencies within the U.S. to more actively apply for No and Low Emission (NOLO) grants from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

Abul has also served diligently as a panelist for the Transportation Research Board (TRB) at the National Academy of Sciences Engineering and Medicine to provide guidance on the future of SAE Level 5 iterations of autonomous vehicles.
