Investor Briefing - The Future of Transport: Investing in Low Carbon Road Transport Infrastructure
Ingenious Clean Energy Investments, 15 Golden Square, London, W1F 9JG

From 05:30 PM to 09:00 PM on 01 March 2017


Forbury Investment Network and Rushlight Events would like to invite you to our upcoming Investor Briefing on 'The Future of Transport: Investing in Low Carbon Road Transport Infrastructure' which will be held on Wednesday 1st March.

In a packed Autumn Statement that focussed on “investing today for the economy of the future”, Chancellor Philip Hammond announced £390m of funding earmarked for the ‘future transport technology’, including driverless cars, renewable fuels and energy-efficient transport. This will include £150m to provide at least 550 new electric and hydrogen buses; reduce the emissions of 1,500 existing buses and support taxis to become zero-emissions; and £80m to install more charging points for ultra-low emission vehicles.  He also confirmed that the Government will provide a 100% first-year capital allowance for the installation of electric vehicle charging infrastructure. 

With most of the main car and commercial vehicle manufacturers now offering hybrid, hydrogen and/or electric models, the faster take-up of low emission vehicles is arguably now the infrastructure to support them, particularly in respect of fuel and power. This investor briefing will explore the current status of low carbon road infrastructure, what is likely to be developed in the near future and what is needed to achieve the UK Government’s target of almost every car and van being an ultra-low emission vehicle by 2050. With electric cars being ideal for short journeys, will the charging network be focused on homes, shopping centres and car parking spaces? Hydrogen is particularly effective for longer distance haulage, so will the hydrogen network evolve at distribution centres and at motorway service stations? Will electric car battery swap arrangements become established on motorways to speed up electric car charging for longer journeys?

This briefing will be ideal for investors, financiers, technology developers, stakeholders of the road fuel infrastructure supply chain, consultants, freight distribution and logistics organisations, advisers, intermediaries and corporate sustainability professionals.
