  • This Parliamentary reception and associated seminar mark the start of an initiative to bring the climate change and air quality communities closer together and to help ensure that UK vehicle and transport fuel policy is most effectively oriented towards tackling these twin threats. This event is jointly hosted by the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP) and the Clean Air Alliance (CAA).

  • The Future Powertrain Conference (FPC2016) is a two day UK event created to bring together industry and academic experts within the powertrain development field. It will open up presentations and discussions on the solutions to the challenges faced by the engineering industry in the UK and internationally over the next ten years.

  • UK Bus Summit 2016

    Date: 11 Feb 2016

    The second annual UK Bus Summit will be held in London at the QEII Conference Centre, Westminster, once again supported by the Department for Transport. The event brings together operators, local authorities and the bus supply industry to encourage the industry to work together to stimulate patronage growth, and to raise awareness of the role the bus can play in stimulating the economy, getting people to work, reducing emissions, providing access for the elderly and tackling inequality. 

  • This seminar will provide a timely opportunity to discuss the development of low emission transport in the UK. It will follow the announcement of the winners of the Go Ultra Low City Scheme in autumn 2015. The LowCVP's Managing Director, Andy Eastlake, is among the speakers.

  • The UK's Motoring Future

    Date: 03 Dec 2015

    Following the publication of the Transport Select Committees’ Report Motoring of The Future, and the Government’s code of practice for testing driverless cars, this event provides a forum to discuss the challenges and opportunities that lay ahead in delivering a coherent transport strategy that ensures the UK is able to embrace the next generation of road vehicles.

  • My Electric Avenue’s ‘Turning the Corner’ final dissemination event is an opportunity to share learning and results from the project with stakeholders from across Government, the utilities and automotive sectors. The project aimed to discover essential learning about managing the local electricity network as sales of cars with ‘plug-in’ capability continue to rise.

  • New legislation from the EU is driving car manufacturers towards the production of more fuel efficient and less polluting models, partly achieved by reducing the weight of the vehicle structure. This seminar will explore the latest developments in vehicle body design and lightweighting, and will cover a variety of topics including crash safety, end-of-life disassembly, recycling and multi-material construction technologies.

  • The LowCVP is holding a stakeholder workshop in London  to progress the Partnership's commercial vehicle activity, including the accreditation scheme for after-market technologies as well as providing opportunities for operators and others to collaborate in a new, DfT-funded test programme to benchmark vehicles powered by natural gas/biomethane. The group will also commence activity on the specific actions needed to stimulate low carbon urban freight solutions.
