Low CVP Conference (24/6/15)


The LowCVP Conference 2015 will take place on Wednesday, 24 June in Central London, sponsored by EDF Energy.

This year’s event will focus on future fuels for transport and the infrastructure required to support them, particularly in the city environment.

Timed to take place in the week leading up to Britain’s first FIA Formula E electric car race – to be held in London’s Battersea Park – the LowCVP Annual Conference will provide an opportunity to find out how electric vehicle motor racing will affect the mainstream car market. We are delighted that Formula E’s Chief Executive, Alejandro Agag, will speak at the event and a Formula E car is planned to be on display at the Conference venue.

BaronessThis year’s event will present the findings of the DfT/LowCVPTransport Energy Task Force, providing a road map towards a low carbon future for road transport fuels.

It will also provide an opportunity for local policy makers to find out more about policy best practice in low carbon road transport best practice, particularly valuable for the twelve cities involved in OLEV’s £35m Go Ultra Low City Scheme for which final bids are due at the end of August.

The Conference morning session will focus on how Formula E can help drive electric motoring into the mainstream. Featuring Edmund King, President of the AA, the session will also include a response from the motor industry and the NGO perspective, responding to Alejandro Agag, Chief Executive of Formula E.
A keynote address from a leading government spokesperson will be followed by parallel sessions focusing on a roadmap for future transport fuels – including the findings of the joint DfT/LowCVP Transport Energy Task Force – and the fuels infrastructure challenges we face.

The final Conference session will bring together some of the earlier discussions and look at Mobility in Future Cities. The full LowCVP Conference agenda will be published shortly.
