Book your table at the Transport + Energy Forum

Spaces are already starting to be taken up at this year’s inaugural Transport + Energy Forum – an event which will focus on immediate and actionable steps that need to be taken to decarbonise.

The event, which is taking place at the Birmingham Conference & Events Centre (BCEC) on 17th November, will unite professionals from both sectors to help accelerate the transition to clean transport and energy.  

With more than two-thirds of emissions from energy production, and a third of all emissions from transport, decarbonising these two sectors will lead the net zero agenda across the world.

With the UK reaching record temperatures of over 40C (104F) for the first time recently, this has shown us that the issue of climate change must be taken seriously with urgent action required now. 

Focusing on what and how, the Forum event will set out the breadth of the challenge faced with a real focus on actionable solutions that can be taken now. 

This exclusive event will connect transport and energy leaders with policymakers, industry groups, NGOs, the supply chain, networks, regulators, the highways sector, tech disruptors, automotive manufacturers, local authorities, customer groups, plus other stakeholders tasked with the job of fully decarbonising our transport and energy systems. 

The event will include high-level keynote speeches about how governments and businesses can accelerate the transition to clean transport and energy. It will also include interactive panel debates focused on the key challenges and solutions; educational presentations; discussions; and much more.  

Attendees will also have access to networking opportunities and a tabletop exhibition, creating the space to form new connections and cross-sector collaborations. The conversations will then continue over an evening reception with delegates given the opportunity to cement relationships and opportunities for collaboration that could have a lasting impact. Packages also include accommodation.     

Spaces for local councils are being provided free of charge so that each participating company is guaranteed access to local government officers who sit at the heart of this transition.   

Editorial Director Alec Peachey said: “Having launched the event just over a week ago we have been delighted by the response from both sectors. The inaugural Transport + Energy Forum will provide a fantastic opportunity for different stakeholder groups to get together and discuss ways in which they can work together to reach net zero.

“The importance of doing so cannot be underestimated. We have less than 1,000 days to move the needle on climate change, encourage electric vehicle (EV) adoption and greener energy solutions. The time for action is now. One of our main objectives is to bring together professionals who historically might not have had a link, together. They’ll be provided with a fantastic opportunity to learn, share and work together to drive change.

“Whether it is local transport and energy plans on EVs, regional partnerships and business projects, or the government setting national policy and financial frameworks, it is critical these are done with both transport and energy networks, systems and infrastructure in mind. We look forward to welcoming professionals involved in making the transition to clean transport and energy happen to Birmingham in November.”

The event will take place at the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre (BCEC) on 17th November 2022. 

Topics for discussion (subject to change) will include: 

  • How businesses can make the shift to all-electric fleets
  • Preparing the grid for transport decarbonisation
  • How can the rollout of charging infrastructure keep pace with sales of EVs, does it need to?
  • Understanding the challenges and opportunities facing transport decarbonisation across land, sea and air.
  • Shaping the policy and regulatory landscape 
  • The rising cost of energy and how it may impact EV adoption
  • The role of local authorities in accelerating the transition to clean transport and energy 
  • Decarbonising logistics and reducing emissions – the role of electric and hydrogen 
  • Vehicle manufacturer challenges – supply chain issues, what help do they need from different stakeholder groups as they go on this journey?
  • Decarbonising energy and moving away from fossil fuel reliance
