16.4.2012 LowCVP event runs alongside EcoVelocity
The 2012 LowCVP Annual Conference will take place at ExCel, London Docklands on Thursday 10 May alongside the EcoVelocity low carbon motor show which will run from 5-13 May.
The conference will feature leading speakers, topical debates and the opportunity to network with low carbon industry leaders and stakeholders. The event will last from 9.30 to 4.30pm.
Delegates at the LowCVP Conference 2012 will have the opportunity to visit EcoVelocity 2012 which will showcase the latest in cutting edge 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. EcoVelocity takes place alongside the Grand Designs exhibition to which LowCVP delegates will also have free access.
The LowCVP Conference will feature discussions about the latest state of climate politics, the latest national and international policy developments and will also include a debate on the drive to meet the UK's Carbon Plan targets. There will be sessions on low carbon fleet management, freight, fuels and the perceived discrepancy between 'real world' and test-cycle emissions.
Sponsored by Michelin, keynote speakers will include Justine Greening MP, Secretary of State for Transport, Richard Bruce, head of OLEV, Paul Everitt, Chief Executive at SMMT, as well as representatives from the Department for Transport, The Guardian, Ricardo Ltd, British Gas and the Technology Strategy Board.
The LowCVP Conference has become a leading fixture on the transport calendar, regularly attracting senior politicians, industry leaders and other key stakeholders as speakers, as well as 200 or more high-level delegates. Most years the event attracts a good number of media representatives and is often filmed – this year Next Green Car will be one of the media partners.
The LowCVP is a multi-stakeholder partnership of around 200 organisations from the motor and oil industries, environment groups, government, academics and road user bodies. The Partnership is partly funded by the DfT, using its public funds to leverage industry action to accelerate the shift to low carbon vehicles and fuels.
