We have been given a challenge: the UK government has set 2030 as the deadline for ending the sale of new, fossil fuel-powered cars. This commitment is an essential element of the nation’s journey to #netzero and a key test of the road transportation sector’s ability to make measurable progress in decarbonisation.
What are the specific steps to achieving EVs by 2030?
Please join techUK and Arup alongside key figures from National Grid and Urban Data Collective for a focused discussion about how the UK will make a rapid and effective shift to EVs. We will outline how the physical, energy and data infrastructure should be adapted to support this transition, progress so far, and how to phase the work still needed.
Please join techUK and Arup for a London Climate Action Week 2021 event.
This one-hour session will be chaired by Teodora Kaneva, techUK programme manager for smart infrastructure and systems. She will be joined by:
• Alex Gluhak, Urban Data Collective, CEO and Co-Founder
• Teddy Spasova, Arup, Associate, Regulatory and EV Economics
• Russell Fowler, National Grid, Transport Decarbonisation Project Manager
This event is running as part of London Climate Action Week. It is free to attend and open to all. If you would like to attend this session and are not currently a techUK member, please RSVP to [email protected]
