Transport Secretary lined up for low carbon conference
Transport Secretary Justine Greening is the keynote speaker at the LowCVP’s 2012 Annual Conference.
Delegates at the event will have the opportunity to network with government officials, leading industry, business and NGO representatives, and will also receive VIP entry to EcoVelocity, the green motor show.
This year’s conference will feature sessions on the latest state of climate politics; implications of the UK Government’s Carbon Plan targets; industry viewpoints; test-cycle versus ‘real world’ emissions; low carbon freight; low carbon fleets and low carbon fuels.
EcoVelocity 2012 will also showcase the latest technology from the world’s leading car manufacturers, as well as providing the opportunity for test drives of the newest low carbon and electric vehicles.
Sessions will include low carbon fleet management, freight, fuels and the perceived discrepancy between ‘real world’ and test-cycle emissions.
They will be delivered in partnership with the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association, Road Haulage Association and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
Business transport managers are encouraged to attend the event to learn more about company car issues, and get an insight into ExCel’s electrical charging points for cars, which are to be used as part of the London Olympics fleet, and which will subsequently become part of the pan-London charging network.
The conference will take place on May 10 at ExCeL, London Docklands.
