In addition, Ian Constance, CEO of the Advanced Propulsion Centre UK (APC), will provide a perspective on the UK’s future potential as an electric vehicle manufacturing hub.
Later in the morning, a series of expert panels will debate the fleet sector’s progress towards the 2030 phase-out, discussing the implications of the Zero Emission Vehicle Mandate, the UK Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Strategy and the current state of the automotive supply chain.
The afternoon programme is a series of breakout sessions:
- New business models
- Carbon accounting and ESG
- EV innovation zone
- Second life EVs and beyond
This conference embraces the role the fleet industry is playing in driving road transport decarbonisation, as well as our collective responsibility in continuing that journey. Our guest speakers are the architects drawing up the blueprints for the 2030 phase-out and will share key insights for fleet operators and mobility providers.Gerry Keaney, chief executive, BVRLA
