Marcus Jones Principal Consultant


I specialise in sustainable transport and decarbonisation, drawing on many years’ experience working on trials and real-world demonstration projects involving a range of transport modes and vehicles.

Marcus Jones, Principal Consultant

Marcus has 25 years’ experience in research and consultancy in sustainable transport and decarbonisation; following postgraduate research into urban air pollution.  He has had a particular focus on monitoring and trials of sustainable transport measures and low emission technologies. He has worked on high profile projects for a range of government clients and agencies, including the UK Department of Transport, Transport for London, Highways England, Innovate UK, the EU and the rail industry.

Recent work includes in-fleet trials of hydrogen fuel cell and electric vehicles, HGV platooning, Vehicle to Grid charging; and providing monitoring and evaluation advice for a Future Transport Zone.  He is experienced in analysis of fuel, energy consumption and environmental impacts of vehicles and applying cost-benefit analysis / transport appraisal methods to innovative transport technologies. This experience gives him a good understanding of measures for achieving decarbonisation in transport.
