LowCVP conference to focus on low carbon fuels

LowCVP conference to focus low carbon fuels

The LowCVP's 2019 Annual Conference, taking place in Westminster, London, on Monday, July 8, will focus on the low carbon fuels agenda.

Acknowledging the momentum behind moves to 'electrify everything', it will analyse which other fuel types can support the drive to cut emissions in the short, medium and long-term as well as which policy interventions are required to support them.

The event will feature discussions around sustainable biofuels, hydrogen and new generation, low emission fuels.

The LowCVP Conference will form part of a two-day fuels-focussed event (July 8-9).

Sponsored by Shell, the LowCVP Conference 2019 is held in collaboration with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and in association with the Renewable Energy Association (REA).

The LowCVP 2019 Annual Conference is also part of London Climate Action Week, which is supported by the Mayor of London.

The two events focusing on future fuels will be co-located at One Birdcage Walk. Monday's "Future Fuels on the Road to Zero" will focus on fuels policy. Tuesday's "Low Carbon Transport: Engineering the Fuels of the Future", run by IMechE, will focus on fuels practice, technology and emissions testing.

The 2019 LowCVP Conference is being held in association with the Renewable Energy Association who will be collaborating in a parallel discussion on the role of next generation fuels during the afternoon session.

A post-conference evening drinks reception will be held in the grand Elizabethan style Library at One Birdcage Walk, bringing together delegates and participants from both events, as well as invited MPs, Lords and other VIPs.

Speakers include: transport minister Michael Ellis; Kevin Anderson, Professor of Energy and Climate Change, Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research; Greg Archer, UK director of Transport and Environment; and Aaron Berry, head of strategy at Department for Transport (DfT).
