The EV Energy Taskforce was established in 2018 to make proposals to government and industry to bring together the auto and energy sectors to ensure that the GB energy system is able to accelerate the mass take-up of electric vehicles while also delivering benefits to the electricity system. The Taskforce's first phase was an unprecedented collaboration of
more than 350 organisations including many household names.
The Taskforce made twenty-one key proposals for actions to be taken by government and industry to enable an effective and efficient electric mobility transition. The proposals were included in a report which was
launched in January 2020.
The event on 22 October will update delegates on plans for the next phase of the EV Energy Taskforce as it moves to action the agreed proposals in preparation for their implementation.
There will be contributions from key stakeholders and Taskforce working group leaders, including EV Energy Taskforce Chair,
Philip New, Chief Executive of the Energy Systems Catapult, and Taskforce Deputy Chair Andy Eastlake, LowCVP's Managing Director. See below for the full list of speakers.
The event will run from 2pm to 5pm and include presentations, a panel debate and interactive sessions with working group leaders. There will also be opportunities for interactive networking between delegates after the formal proceedings.
