Main Stage Welcome Address
Opening Keynote Presentation
Setting the scene for zero carbon mobility and specifically the role of transport and EV. Market development and adoption analysis. The role of government in developing effective strategies and legislation to support the shift
to clean, sustainable transportation. Also, EV myth-busting, sustainable energy and the grid.
Investing in the future
Taking a look at investment across the sector. From government funded and enabled initiatives – to capital sourcing strategies and support for both Startups and Scale-ups. Joint industry projects and collaborations from OEM’s and Big Energy - to the role of the finance and banking sector.
Women in Mobility
The essential contributions by women in mobility cannot be overstated. Developing female leaders is not just fundamental, but a critical step to inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs, startups, engineers, leaders and chief executives. We are now seeing more women in senior and influential positions; they are however still in the minority. Going forward, how do we redress the balance?
Delving into the complex subject of supportive infrastructure for the widescale rollout of electric vehicle adoption. Asking what new technologies will we see making their way onto our roads and into our cities in the near
future, what else will we need in support of rapid charging stations, will induction charging take a hold of the market in the future and are there limitations?
Evening Networking Reception in association with UNIPART GROUP
Join other attendees, for a relaxed evening of networking in a ‘smart-casual’ atmosphere, including all alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and light bites, you’ll discover the perfect atmosphere to meet old, new and future
Electrifying the Future
This special evening session of the event will see senior leaders from across the sector take to the Main Stage, sharing insight on some of the most important aspects of electrification; original equipment and vehicle development, sustainable transport, energy and infrastructure, charging, emerging technologies and more…

State of the Industry
This session will include analysis of both the global and local electric vehicle industry. Addressing sales and development, investment and market potential, governmental and industrial development strategies and more. Can
the grid, energy companies and the affiliated infrastructure cope with a mass EV adoption, and in both the long and short-term, what additional infrastructure is required?
Covering all things battery, from the basic building blocks of Lithium-ion cells and batteries - to the development of sustainable, reusable and recyclable systems. The very latest developments and the challenges and opportunities
created within the raw materials sourcing, manufacturing and supply chain sectors, along with the safe development, storage, transit and disposal of battery systems and materials.
Addressing modern propulsion systems: this session asks - what is being developed, and where are new advances, technologies and efficiencies being found? What changes can we expect to see in the next couple of years, and will
materials science and innovative engineering prove to offer incremental efficiencies or be a revolution in the making? Power sources from Lithium-ion batteries, to Hydrogen Fuel Cell, bio-fuel and more.
What does the EV supply chain look like? From last-mile to the transportation of hazardous materials – with large-scale Lithium-ion battery shipments – to Finished Vehicles, Fleet and Auto Parts Distribution, where are the
main challenges and who will make the most of the opportunities? Sustainability, just what EV solutions are being developed and implemented to the Last-mile delivery sector?
Most Innovative Startup
As we return to the Main Stage, we take time to recognise and celebrate the Most Innovative Startup in attendance at the event.
Addressing the challenges for ADAS, this session explores all the latest developments for the future of autonomous driving. A holistic discussion on the road to level 5, including systems engineering, artificial intelligence,
sensor fusion, safety and security, data harvesting and processing, connected (smart infrastructure and 5G). All driven by a need for better, safer roads and transportation systems.
Leaders Insights in association with GEFCO
Not to be missed - this session will bring together leading lights from across the industry, discussing elements from the days topics and up-coming developments. Asking what does the future hold for the automotiveEV sector
as a whole? Are we investing in the right things? And who will lead the way? Along with much more…
