To successfully grasp these changes as well as the manifold opportunities and implications they bring, it is critical to understand the new business models and infrastructure trends in the EV space.
Building upon the success of last years' inaugural event, the Automotive and Transportation team at Frost & Sullivan is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its second annual Electric Vehicles Unplugged interactive workshop in London on 22 and 23 June 2010. This years' conference will focus on two very important hot topics – new business models and developments in infrastructure.
The first day of the workshop will take place at the House of Lords and provide a forum for parliamentarians and industry experts to debate consumer needs and the role of policy makers. Chaired by Lord Taylor, one side of the debate will feature Sarwant Singh from Frost & Sullivan, Ayoul Grouvel from PSA and Diana Blake from Optimal Energy, who will highlight what support is needed from government to make EVs a success. One the other side of the debate will be newly elected Members of Parliament, explaining what government will be doing to support EV development. The aim of the debate is to emphasize and discuss any gaps between Industry requirements and government support.
"The debate is a truly unique opportunity to bring industry and parliamentarians together in an open forum to explore what is needed to make Electric Vehicles a success in the UK. With the audience being made up of industry representatives and MPs, we expect an open and insightful discussion," states Frost & Sullivan's Automotive & Transportation Director Sarwant Singh.
Day two of the workshop will be held at the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) and feature keynote presentations from some of the industry's top experts. In addition, the following exhibition vehicles will be showcased: the Tesla Roadster, Mitsubishi's iMiEV, Citroën's C-Zero, the Dark Knight 2-wheeler EV from Urbanites and Scooters and Vauxhall's Ampera. Participants will have the opportunity to test drive some of these vehicles.
