LowCVP Annual ConferenceJuly 5, 2010
Green cars will be the centre of debate at the LowCVP’s 2010 conference which will take place 14-15 July at Twickenham Stadium in West London.
The first day will focus on international best practice, with speakers discussing how consumers are reacting to technology advances in the UK and other countries in the vanguard of the low carbon transport shift.
There will be more detailed discussion of key issues during break-out sessions on day two of the event.
The event will also feature exhibitions and a number of launches and announcements, including the release of the Renewable Fuels Agency’s second report on the sustainability of biofuels supplied to the UK market; the launch of the LowCVP’s Technology Challenge 2 and the announcement of the winning entrants to the LowCVP/EST Low Carbon Community Challenge.
There are a wide range of speakers, and government is due to be represented by the Rt Hon Philip Hammond MP, Secretary of State, Department for Transport (tbc); Victoria Hodkinson-Gibbs, Deputy Director Cleaner Vehicles and Fuels Division, DfT; and Michael Hurwitz, Director, Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV). It should be interesting to hear how government-supported low emission vehicle programmes will be impacted by spending cuts.
The event will, for the first time, include an Awards Dinner featuring the third WhatCar? Green Awards and the inaugural LowCVP Low Carbon Champions Awards in the evening of 14 July.
