About this event

Day 3: Wednesday 20th October – Sponsored by Phillips 66

Physical event start: 8:30am

Virtual event start: 9:00am

The growth of the global market in zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) is outpacing expectations, and some estimates project that they will make up over 50% of all new car sales by 2040. In other words, we need to double the pace of the global transition to zero emission vehicles.

Business leaders will come together to discuss the role the UK and the Humber will play in developing, manufacturing and using zero emission road vehicles and the impact of global emissions from road transport. Rising faster than in any other sector, road transport accounts for over 10% of global emissions, as well as causing high levels of local air pollution.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Host: Peter Cole, Principal Environmental and Sustainability Officer, Transport for the North
  • Chris Ramsey, EV Adventurer, Presenter, Guinness World Record Holder & Founder of Plug in Adventures
  • Mike Wailes, Director, Manager, MiRO JV and Director, European Strategy, Phillips 66
  • Tristan Allen, Founder ‘Fully Charged – Silverstone’
  • Brian Houston, Mechanical Engineering Lecturer at University of Hull
