The full agenda and speaker line up for 16 November’s Forum will focus on the need for the transport and energy sectors to move further and faster to meet the challenge of decarbonisation.
A stellar line up of more than 20 speakers has been announced, including keynotes from Chris Skidmore MP and clean air campaigner Rosamund Adoo-Kissi-Debrah CBE. The main agenda includes Cordi O’Hara OBE from National Grid, Stephen Elderkin from National Highways, Edmund King OBE from The AA, broadcaster Quentin Willson and Lizzie Culwick from the Office for the Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV).
The packed agenda will feature 18 sessions, including presentations, TED style talks, panel discussions and networking to ensure variety and inspiration and to maximise collaboration opportunities.
National Grid will be the headline platinum sponsor for the first time.
Alec Peachey, Transport + Energy Editorial Director commented: “We are delighted to welcome National Grid as our headline sponsor this year. They are at the crux of the challenge to bring the two sectors together to implement the changes needed for net zero. We are delighted to have their support as well as some excellent speakers from their senior strategic team. Most of our sponsors from last year are back with us, along with some new ones, helping us to build an even better event for this year.”
Other sponsors include Trojan Energy, Char.gy, ElectriX, The AA, Fastned, EV Civils Solutions, SWARCO, Motability Operations and Direct Line Group. Alongside sponsors, the event also has the support of nine organisations, some of whom will be taking part in a tabletop exhibition.
Attendees will include industry professionals from a wide range of organisations, including government decision makers, local authorities, consultancies, construction and engineering companies, transport planners, vehicle manufacturers and technology innovators.
The Forum has a special focus for delegates from local authorities, who can apply for fully funded places. Of particular interest will be sessions on the Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (LEVI) fund, how to take action over clean air zones and insight on collaboration with charge point operators.
The one day Forum will be followed by an evening networking dinner, hosting the first ever Transport + Energy Awards.
