EV8 Technologies builds business models of the future to accelerate the energy transition

Background The Team

EV8 is a joint venture

EV8 technologies is a joint venture in which our three organizations have joined forces to combine global boardroom reach with a decade of niche IP, data, and world-class technology.

As the lines blur between the energy, infrastructure and transport sectors, EV8 helps accelerate the transition to a low-carbon world and drive commercially viable solutions that bring value to both businesses and consumers.


EV8 | Richard Forest

“Working with executives across the globe, many are approaching us to identify how and where they should participate in new opportunities driven by an accelerating energy transition trend. The convergence of industries and technologies means no one has the full capability set to succeed alone so cooperation across sectors is critical. Through EV8 technologies we provide access to deep expertise, leading consortiums and the ‘hands-on’ capability to build new, commercially viable business models of the future.”
