Councils set to attend Transport + Energy Forum

A number of local authorities have signed up to attend next month’s Transport + Energy Forum – with the event set to provide advice and support around actions they can take to reduce carbon emissions.

Representatives from councils including Kent, Oxfordshire, Coventry, Black Country Transport, Transport for Wales, Blackpool and Sandwell have all signed up to attend the event which takes place on 17th November at the Birmingham Conference & Events Centre.

Those attending will hear practical guidance on how to rollout EV charging infrastructure, the role of transport technology in decarbonising for the future, along with a look at sustainable models to ensure everyone can benefit from good value, reliable public charging networks for years into the future.

There’s also an update on Regional Energy System Optimisation Planning whilst Chris Rimmer, Infrastructure Strategy Lead at Cenex, will be providing an update entitled ‘Delivering local EV infrastructure’. During this session Chris will talk about the LEVI Support Body, formed of Cenex, Energy Saving Trust and PA Consulting, which provides expert technical and commercial support to enable successful LEVI applications for a share of the £400m capital grant scheme administered by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV).  

Delegates will also hear from the Joint Head of OZEV; the Deputy Director for Net Zero Electricity Networks at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS); National Grid; Electric Vehicle Association England; The EV Network; Green 2 Delivery; National Highways; Transport Technology Forum; and many more. View the full agenda here.

Local authorities are being provided with fully funded places at the event, including meals and accommodation.
