Adam Chase has overall responsibility for E4tech’s work on low carbon transport and on energy innovation and policy. He has been a director of E4tech since joining in 2001 and he plays a role in many of the firm’s projects where strategy, policy or stakeholder engagement – in combination with technology – are key. Adam’s project work often relates to corporate or national strategy and involves an understanding of how energy systems operate, rather than technologies in isolation. Adam’s particular interest is low carbon innovation in the energy and automotive sectors. He also has operational responsibility for the London office.
Adam was previously a manager with the global management consulting firm A.T.Kearney, where he took part in and led teams engaged in a wide range of strategic and operational projects across the international energy and chemicals sectors. Prior to this, Adam worked for seven years in the upstream and downstream oil and gas industry and also spent time as a journalist with the Financial Times organisation focusing on energy, environment and automotive issues. He has degrees in Economics, Engineering (University of Birmingham), Energy & Environmental Technology (Imperial College). He speaks English, French and conversational Italian.
