The Covid-19 pandemic is widely expected to give the government’s net zero carbon emissions strategy a big boost, and the new Commercial Motor Show virtual conference will take a look at the options for decarbonising heavy road transport.

David Cebon, professor of mechanical engineering at Cambridge University, will compare the efficiency of hydrogen fuel cells with battery electric vehicles, while Brian Robinson, head of commercial vehicles at the LowCVP, will review the role of biofuels.

Rob Fowler, chief executive of electric vehicle start up manufacturer Volta, will give an update on the company’s plans for a range of purpose-built battery electric trucks while Graham Cooley, chief executive of ITM Power will put the case for hydrogen as the fuel of the future.

The CM Show is a new virtual exhibition and conference that will bring hundreds of exhibitors together with thousands of visitors without the need for social distancing. It takes place on 29 September to 1 October and to book a stand email emma.tyrer@roadtransport.com
