The LowCVP's 2019 Annual Conference took place in Westminster, London on Monday, July 8
th, with a focus on the low carbon fuels agenda; acknowledging the momentum behind moves to ' electrify everything', while analysing which other fuel types can support the drive to cut emissions in the short, medium and long-term as well as the policy interventions required to support them. The event featured discussions around sustainable biofuels, hydrogen and new generation, low emission fuels.

A post-conference evening drinks reception was held in the grand Elizabethan style Library at One Birdcage Walk, bringing together delegates and participants from both events, as well as invited MPs and several members of the House of Lords.
The LowCVP Conference formed part of a two-day fuels-focused event (8-9th July).
Sponsored by Shell, the LowCVP Conference 2019 was held in collaboration with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and in association with the Renewable Energy Association (REA).
The two events focusing on future fuels were co-located at One Birdcage Walk. Monday's "
Future Fuels on the Road to Zero" focused on fuels policy. Tuesday's " Low Carbon Transport: Engineering the Fuels of the Future", run by IMechE, focused on fuels practice, technology and emissions testing.
The LowCVP Annual Conference was held as part of
London Climate Action Week
which ran from 1-8 July, and was convened by the Mayor of London.
It was a chance to share world-leading low carbon solutions and expertise, and highlighted what London is doing to tackle the climate emergency.
