What is the impact of the accelerated fossil fuel and hybrid vehicle sales ban on the electricity network?

Our next electric vehicle and electricity system forum will look at the latest changes to the ban on the sale of new Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) and hybrid cars and vans, and the implications for the electricity network. How can the electricity system deliver on the updated ambition from government? What are the new uptake trajectories for EV numbers and charging infrastructure; what are the main electricity infrastructure barriers to uptake; which market failures still need to be addressed?

The webinar will hear from industry leaders in the EV sector debating progress and examining the future for this growing infrastructure opportunity.

We will be joined by:

  • Paul van Heyningen, deputy director, net zero electricity networks, BEIS
  • Sara Sloman, zero emission mobility, energy and infrastructure, Foot Anstey LLP
  • Naomi Nye, EV sales manager UK, Alfen
  • Olly Frankland, project manager, Regen
