Transforming Transport: Getting from A to EV

21 February 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm

IET are joining with ICE and Renewables Scotland to host a workshop which will focus on our transport system which presents one of the greatest challenges in decarbonisation.

Almost a quarter of our emissions come from domestic and commercial transport. We’ve already seen bold ambitions with the Scottish Government pledging to phase out new petrol and diesel vehicles by 2032. This policy in response to both climate change and air quality concerns brings the issue of green transport closer than ever to consumers and citizens and is causing anticipation and excitement about low-carbon mobility.

The question now though, is how do we deliver this?

  • How do we ensure that our electricity infrastructure networks are able to cope with what could be a sharp and unpredictable take-up pattern and additional strain on local networks?
  • Can our EV revolution actually help introduce new flexibility options into the energy system?
  • Which of the various actors involved should underpin this change with the necessary investment?
  • How do we maximise the opportunity in transport to support wider low-carbon ambitions?
