Electrical Vehicle Supply Chain Workshop – SMMT

22/06/2017 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Location
SMMT

The UK is targeting that every new car manufactured will be zero emissions from 2040. In order to support the significant scale up required in Hybrid, Plug in Hybrid and Battery Electric Vehicle manufacturing, the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) is working with industry and government to support the development of the Electric Vehicle Supply Chain.

The Electrification Supply Chain (ESC) programme aims to engage supply partners at all levels of the Supply Chain and to deliver toolkits which will act as a ‘one stop shop’, connecting everyone from Vehicle Manufacturers to materials producers in the UK. The toolkit will also identify research projects which are underway or have been completed in this area so that companies looking to develop EV capabilities can access and leverage what has already been done to identify and build future collaborations.

In addition to supporting commercial entities to develop their business today, the ESC programme will help inform the UK Government where the most significant opportunities to develop the supply chain lie and what tools we may need to do this.

Is your organisation interested or already involved in the EV supply chain? If so, the APC would like to involve you in this initiative.

The first event in this series ‘sold out’ within three days. And there has been an equal level of interest in subsequent events, held around the country.

Please to join us on Thursday 22nd June from 1:00pm to 4:30pm at the SMMT, 71 Great Peter Street, London SW1P 2BN.

During this event, you will hear from key players in the supply chain about their future EV supply chain requirements and capabilities and hear the government perspective on the EV Strategy for the UK. You will also have the opportunity to help shape the toolkits we use to build an end to end supply chain capable of delivering the maximum UK content in the powertrains of the future.

Please register for this event by Thursday 8th June.
