Atlas Public Policy equips businesses and policymakers to make strategic, informed decisions that serve the public interest. Atlas builds analytical tools and dashboards using powerful, accessible technology, and offers expert advisory services to tackle the pressing issues of the day.

Our key work areas currently include transportation and building electrification, climate policy, and disinformation tracking.

Public data is flooding the internet at an unprecedented pace. Collecting and interpreting that information is a key challenge for policymakers looking to address the social problems of today, and for businesses looking to offer solutions. Too often, this information is obscured, hidden behind paywalls, or otherwise inaccessible – requiring government, industry, and non-profits to waste valuable time and resources. If left unchecked, these challenges will intensify as an increasingly aware and critical public scrutinizes the use of public funds.

As industry, policymakers, and non-profits become increasingly interdependent on publicly available information, the need for sophisticated technology to interpret that information grows. To address emerging societal challenges, policymakers must develop and implement policies and regulations that encourage the use of new technology and products as well as changes in consumer behavior. Businesses must grow new markets for their products that overcome entrenched interests.

Atlas Public Policy (“Atlas”) was founded in 2015, by Nick Nigro, a nationally known expert on alternative fuel vehicle financing, policy, and technology. Nick previously led the development of several complex financial and policy analysis tools, convened large groups of diverse stakeholders nationwide, and managed a comprehensive analysis of greenhouse gas mitigation from U.S. transportation.
