SocEnv supports EV Infrastructure Summit 2020
11 February 2020
The Society is pleased to be supporting the EV Infrastructure Summit 2020 - as part of our commitment to supporting the UK's transition to net zero.
On June 6th 2019, the UK Government committed the UK to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050, an ambitious goal that requires a huge expansion in the use of electric vehicles across the country.
The second edition of the EV Infrastructure Summit (7th - 8th October) will focus on the opportunities and challenges involved in establishing a UK-wide charging infrastructure as part of the transition to zero emission vehicles. Hear insightful presentations from, and informed debate between senior experts and government representatives on the key topics involved in the roll-out of the required infrastructure. The programme will also look at the wider implications for the interconnected transportation, infrastructure and energy industries.
The EV Infrastructure Summit provides a platform on which senior representatives from the key sectors involved discuss the national 2050 zero-emission targets, at a time when there is a great deal of uncertainty about how they will be achieved. Energy industry leaders attend to obtain insights that will inform their investment decisions in the upcoming year. Car manufacturers are present to strategize about their EV manufacturing strategies and to meet key stakeholders to discuss their fleet deployment in the UK. Charging infrastructure providers come to the summit so that they can make assessments about future demand for their product. The transition to EVs will be covered in full during two days of invaluable networking opportunities and a stellar outline of speakers and content.
