Key policymakers to open BVRLA’s Fleets in Charge Conference

Trudy Harrison

The BVRLA has confirmed its BVRLA annual Fleets in Charge Conference will be opened by a panel of policymakers that are driving the UK’s decarbonisation plans.

Opening with an address from transport minister, Trudy Harrison MP, the first session will feature a Q&A with Caroline Low, director of transport decarbonisation at the Department for Transport (DfT) and Bob Moran, deputy director decarbonisation strategy at DfT.

Ian Constance, chief executive officer (CEO) of the Advanced Propulsion Centre UK (APC) will provide a perspective on the UK’s future potential as an electric vehicle manufacturing hub.

A series of panels will also debate the fleet sector’s progress towards the 2030 phase-out, discussing the implications of the zero emission vehicle mandate (ZEV), the UK Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Strategy and the current state of the automotive supply chain.

Gerry Keaney, BVRLA chief executive, said: “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.”

Break-out sessions will be held in the afternoon on new business models, carbon accounting and ESG, EV innovation and second life EVs and beyond.

Physical tickets are available to buy online, with BVRLA members benefiting from a discounted rate.
