  • This seminar will assess opportunities for UK transport to integrate new technologies, utilise big data and the policy requirements for the integration of autonomous vehicles and transformation of transport systems.

    Following the conclusion of evidence presented to the Science and Technology Committee’s Autonomous vehicles inquiry, the recent announcement in the Autumn Statement of £390 million investment in future transport technology, and with the Modern Transport Bill due to be introduced in early-2017 that will include further measures to increase investment in the next generation of transport, discussion is expected on next steps and implementation for innovative transport technology in the 21st Century. 

  • The environmental impact of transport within Europe is increasing due to increased mobility of people and goods. Products for example can be designed in one country, manufactured in another and sold in all European countries while people can live and work in any Member State of the EU. To reduce this environmental impact, the Ecovehicle project is developing the concept of road and rail vehicles with a low environmental footprint and aiming to define a classification for vehicles in order to promote those that are environmentally friendly. 

  • International EV Batteries 2016 will address the critical challenges being faced by electric vehicle OEMs globally. Attendees will take away the latest innovations from Asia, Europe and North America in battery management, modular design, range extension, battery testing and pack integration.

  • CONF002

    Date: 06 Dec 2016

    LowCVP Commercial Vehicle Conference

  • Low Carbon Britain

    Date: 01 Dec 2016

    Low Carbon Britain 2016 Developing a Smart, Resilient, Digital Society is a unique conference that will address Great Britain's current carbon reduction position and allow us to hear from those leading and driving the policies and proposals. One of the main focuses of the conference is to discuss how public sector and organisations along with towns, villages and cities can reduce their carbon emissions. In addition highlight the benefits of a low carbon society with more efficient workplaces , warmer healthier homes and benefit from improved air quality.

  • Current technological capabilities for self-driving cars, highly automated and autonomous vehicles are expanding rapidly. The Driverless Technology Conference (DTC’16) focuses on accelerating growth within driverless technology and maintaining the UK’s position at the forefront of industry development.

  • Join the Advanced Propulsion Centre for a lively debate at the Royal Institution on 14 November, where a panel of industry experts will offer differing visions of the future – and argue that their technology has the power to let the internal combustion engine (I.C.E.) rest in peace.

  • This year marks 60 years since the Clean Air Acts, legislation that tackled the devastating impacts of the great smogs of the 1950’s. EPUK campaigned for this legislation (as the National Society for Clean Air), as we continue to push now for robust environmental legislation and programmes to protect human health, in the light of uncertainty around Brexit. EPUK is marking this significant milestone with a look back and a look ahead, to consider the opportunities and challenges for environmental protection from the current situation and the future to provide health protection for all in the UK.

  • The LowCVP UK e-Bus Summit

    Date: 10 Nov 2016

    The LowCVP UK e-Bus Summit will bring together best practice examples of electric bus and infrastructure deployment in the UK alongside an introduction to the Horizon 2020 "Electrification of Public Transport In Cities" (eLIPTIC) project. eLIPTIC aims to trail and demonstrate the business case for using existing infrastructure to support the charging of buses and other modes of transport across 12 European cities.  

  • The event identifies how electric vehicles can be used as a viable transport option for rural businesses and motorists through new research from a demonstrator trial in Warwickshire. (Warwickshire Rural Electric Vehicle project – WREV)

The acceptance of so many significant changes in technology have mainly been driven and brought about by the dedication of the LowCVP.
