This free evening lecture will explore the aim for zero carbon electricity, the emerging energy gap and the subsequent need for significant investment.
Areas covered by the lecture will include:
* Scope for electric vehicles â€“ findings of Arup/Cenex Report commissioned by Government
* Charging and grid implications
* Consumer charging for domestic usage
There will be plenty of scope for discussion, such as whether investment in city centre fast charging infrastructure could potentially be detrimental to the uptake of electric vehicles across the country.
Attendees will be able to get up close to real electric vehicles which are being used for research during the evening.
