Cenex hosts hybrid and EV conference

Cenex, the UK’s Centre of Excellence in Low Carbon and Fuel Cell Technologies, is to deliver a two-day technical conference on hybrid and electric vehicles on May 18and 19 at the University of Warwick.

Twenty research papers will be presented over the duration of the two-day conference, which aims to raise awareness of the technical, human and policy issues facing the emerging hybrid and electric vehicle market and enable delegates to formulate better strategies for the future.

Highlights of the programme include keynote addresses from Dr Alan Lloyd, president of the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT), whose work focuses on the future of advanced technology and renewable fuels to reduce emissions, and from Andrew Everett, head of Transport for the Technology Strategy Board, that has directed over £110m of public funding into research, development and demonstration for low carbon vehicles.

Robert Evans, CEO of Cenex, said: “The Hybrid and Electric Vehicles Conference will bring together the major players from academia, industry and government to consider the key opportunities and issues associated with low carbon transport.”
