The event, and the drinks reception which follows the conference, will also be an important networking opportunity, as it will bring together a number of different sectors, including the automotive and energy industries, governmental/public sector organisations, ‘new mobility’ companies and other stakeholders.

Andy Eastlake, managing director, Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership, commented: “This is the LowCVP’s first conference in Manchester and I am delighted that we have such an impressive line-up of high profile and knowledgeable speakers. Reducing CO2 emissions and improving air quality are two key items of focus for regions around the UK.

“The conference will provide an opportunity to learn more about these issues in Manchester and the wider Northern Powerhouse area, and the resulting opportunities for businesses in the region. I hope that the event will help to facilitate fruitful new relationships and partnerships to accelerate solutions in the area of low emission road transport.”

The LowCVP event will be held in association with the Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA) and Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM). It is supported by Manchester Metropolitan University and sponsored by GEFCO and Uber.
