Westminster Energy, Environment and Transport Forum to discuss developing low emission transport

EV charging

The Westminster Energy, Environment and Transport Forum will discuss the development of low emission transport in the UK at a seminar in London, on December 8.

The meeting is timed to follow the announcement of the winners of the Go Ultra Low City Scheme in autumn 2015, part of a £65 million fund for cities to become international leaders in low emission vehicles (LEVs).

Keynote speaker will be Richard Bruce, head of the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV).

Delegates will assess technological design and innovation in the electric vehicle market, and look at the next generation of hybrid vehicles, as well as the role of alternative fuels in the low emission arena and progress towards educating drivers on fuel-efficient driving habits.

They will also examine the ability of electricity networks, the strategic road network, and the automotive manufacturing sectors to adapt to an uptake of LEVs, as well as skills issues.

Further planned sessions focus on investment; consumer and business engagement in take-up of LEVs; and what other transport sectors, including aviation and shipping, are doing to reduce emissions.
