On the back of resounding success with Accelerate18, Utility Week, edie and Network are reuniting to host another unique forum of stakeholders in the uptake of electric vehicles in the UK.
Accelerate is designed to bring together the many disparate interest group in the decarbonisation of the UK’s transport system via mass adoption of EVs.
The event successfully built bridges between car makers, fleet managers, energy suppliers and power distribution companies and helped to advance shared understanding of the challenges and opportunities which will need to be seized if each group is to plays its full part in supporting EV growth.
Today, the need to foster this understanding is more urgent than ever.
Government has made a legally binding commitment for the UK to reach a net zero emissions target by 2050 and highlighted the urgent need to slash emissions associated with transport.
With sales of new petrol and diesel cars to be banned after 2030 and manufacture of new EV models ramping up, key infrastructure and service providers in the EV eco-system need to be confident that no critical elements for the success of an electrified transport system are left to chance.
