Nick Molden, UK

Founder & CEO

Emissions Analytics

Nick founded Emissions Analytics in 2011 in order to understand real-world fuel economy and emissions from vehicles. The concept was to find a way to characterise vehicles in a relatively short test and be able to conduct a large number of comparable tests. The solution was to use portable emissions measurement systems to source real on-road raw data efficiently across many vehicles.

This database is now a platform for analysing and modelling this data, from which are created the EQUA Air Quality Index in Europe and Real MPG in the USA, as well as extensive testing of heavy and light duty commercial vehicles. Nick is a specialist in data analytics, particularly in the automotive market, through his prior work at Oxford Indices Ltd, as a data specialist, United Business plc, and Haymarket Media Group.

He is a graduate of the University of Oxford, with an MA in philosophy, politics and economics.
