Watch on-demand our Browne Jacobson event on Thursday 23 September, where our panel of experts discussed Future Opportunities with the Electric Vehicle (EV) Revolution.

From 2030, sales of new conventional petrol and diesel cars and vans will be banned in the UK and from 2035, that ban will extend to hybrid vehicles. It will take a lot of work to achieve these targets; and there is a fantastic opportunity for industry to come together, work collaboratively to accomplish these goals and succeed at creating a greener and cleaner landscape.

As part of the conversation, we explored issues such as:

  • The charging network – do we need to build 3 million charging points?
  • Subsidies and incentives – are these set at the right level?
  • UK gigafactories – what does the automotive sector in the UK need?

Our panel of expert automotive speakers included:

  • Andy Palmer – CEO of Switch Mobility and former CEO of Aston Martin
  • Darren Wilson – Associate Director Linehaul and Transport, DPD
  • Mark Stringer – Director of Strategic Planning and Partnerships, Lotus
  • Jordan Brompton - Co-Founder & Chief Marketing Officer, myenergi
  • Fiona Howarth - CEO of Octopus Electric Vehicles
