Our Forum this year examines the need for the transport and energy sectors to move further and faster to meet the challenge of decarbonisation.

We are delighted to welcome a stellar line up of more than 20 speakers, with keynotes from Chris Skidmore MP and clean air campaigner Rosamund Adoo-Kissi-Debrah CBE, alongside high level speakers from National Grid, National Highways and OZEV.

Our packed agenda features 18 sessions, including presentations, TED style talks, panel discussions and networking, providing variety, inspiration and maximal networking opportunities.

Presentations include updates from National Grid and OZEV, lively panel discussions covering how to accelerate the transition, speeding up connections, plus presentations on accessibility transitions, the communications challenge and enabling affordability.

There is 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.

National Grid is sponsoring the event for the first time. As an organisation at the crux of the challenge to bring the two sectors together, we are delighted to have their support. Our other sponsors include Char.gy, Trojan Energy, ElectriX, The AA, Fastned, EV Civils Solutions, SWARCO, Motability Operations and Direct Line Group.

We also have the support of nine additional organisations, some of which will be taking part in a tabletop exhibition.

Transport + Energy Forum will bring together over 200 leaders 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 is a day of presentations, panel discussions and networking, followed by an evening networking dinner, hosting the first ever Transport + Energy Awards.
