Developing low emission transport in the UK: infrastructure, investment, and next steps for innovation

Event date


This seminar will provide a timely opportunity to discuss the development of low emission transport in the UK. It 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).

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.
