EVs, smart charging, V2G: Free conference, 9 April


Public and private sector organisations considering deploying electric vehicles (EV) charging infrastructure and/or switching fleets to battery-powered cars are invited to The Energyst’s EV Event.

The conference, taking place 9 April, central London, provides a snapshot of the route from here, through smart charging, to vehicle to grid services – and the challenges and opportunities presented by electrification of transport.

Delegates will hear from businesses engaged in major EV rollouts (Mitie) and those testing the water (SES Water); firms that are already solving business challenges with smarter approaches (UPS); and those working out how to make vehicle-to-grid services viable, useful and scalable (Nottingham City Council).

The morning conference will also hear from Nissan, UK Power Networks and National Grid as well as experts from sponsors Arup, EDF Energy and Eon Drive.

The event is free for qualifying end users. Tickets are limited. To request one, click here.
