The Transport + Energy Forum will be offering local authority representatives the opportunity to apply for a fully funded place for the conference in November.
The event, which is taking place on 16th November at the Birmingham Conference & Events Centre, brings together over 200 transport and energy leaders, including some of the most compelling speakers from across the sectors to present, debate and discuss the crucial issues around how to work further and faster to accelerate the transition to a decarbonised future.
Keynote speakers include Chris Skidmore MP and Rosamund Adoo-Kissi-Debrah, clean air campaigner, director of the Ella Roberta Foundation.
The conference includes a panel session on the Local Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (LEVI) fund which features participating councils, enabling local authorities to discover how to bid and learn from others who have obtained the funding.
There will also the be opportunity to find out more about clean air zones from UK100, as well as gain essential insight into the clean transport and energy ecosystem with sessions on charge point operator (CPO) collaboration and speeding up grid connections.
Alec Peachey, Editorial Director for Transport + Energy, commented: ”We appreciate the challenges that local authorities are facing in the transition to net zero, as they take responsibility for the evolution of transport and infrastructure across their areas. As such, their need to learn, collaborate and make strategic choices is vital. We are delighted to offer a number of fully funded local authority delegate places, to help bring the sectors together to achieve positive outcomes, as we move further and faster towards a net zero future.”
Qualified representatives from local authorities can apply for a fully funded place via the event website. The offer includes conference admission, accommodation and an evening celebratory/networking dinner, with day options also available.
