ESCP Europe Business School and electric vehicle advocate TryMyEV are taking to the road on a tour of Europe in four Tesla Model S electric cars, launching their tour with a special event in London on the 12 March.
The conference, 'Electric vehicles in the UK: turning niche into mainstream', will bring together stakeholders in the development of electric vehicles in the UK to discuss the challenges facing the sector.
They will discuss the balance to be struck between what governments and local authorities can promote through policy and regulation, the provision of infrastructure, the supply and prices of vehicles from motor manufacturers, the costs and public attitudes. They will also consider the challenge of planning infrastructure requirements for a fast-evolving new technology.
Bringing their own perspectives to the discussion will be Hugh Edeleanu, chairman of H.E. Services and founder of EVision Supercars; Simon Kempson, managing director of Broadspeed Ltd; Erik Fairbairn, CEO of POD Point and Ben Fletcher, senior product manager for Renault's ZE Range.
