LowCVP Annual Conference 2019 - Future Fuels on the Road to Zero - Book now!
Tue 30 April 2019 | Back to news list
The LowCVP's 2019 Annual Conference, taking place in Westminster, London on Monday, July 8th, will 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 which policy interventions are required to support them.
The UK's vehicle fleet is still over 99.5% combustion engine-powered, and will continue to be a high percentage for some years to come. It is vital to tackle these in order to reduce emissions as much as possible while they are still in operation on UK roads.
The LowCVP Conference will form part of a two-day fuels-focused event (8-9th July), 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 will be co-located at One Birdcage Walk. Monday's "Future Fuels on the Road to Zero" will focus on fuels policy. Tuesday's "Low Carbon Transport: Engineering the Fuels of the Future", run by IMechE, will focus on fuels practice, technology and emissions testing.
The 2019 LowCVP Conference is being held in association with the Renewable Energy Association who will be collaborating in a parallel discussion on the role of next generation fuels during the afternoon session.

A post-conference evening drinks reception will be held in the grand Elizabethan style Library at One Birdcage Walk, bringing together delegates and participants from both events, as well as invited MPs, Lords and other VIPs.
