The Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP) online annual conference will focus on how the UK can seize the opportunity for an investment-led green recovery in road transport as we emerge from the pandemic. The event will also provide a forum for policy ideas and proposals to help inform the government's 2020 Transport Decarbonisation Plan.

The LowCVP's annual conference has been a leading event in the environmental transport calendar for over 15 years, regularly attracting government ministers, key civil servants and senior representatives from industry, academia, government and non-government organisations and others.

‘RESET 2020: Driving the green recovery’ takes place on Wednesday 15 July and will aim to answer the question: ‘How can we seize the opportunity for an investment-led green recovery in road transport?’

It will showcase positive, actionable proposals to inform the development of the UK’s Transport Decarbonisation Plan.

Speakers will cover the implications for low emissions road transport of the pandemic and the opportunities and challenges the dramatic recent changes have created. There will be votable proposals to be endorsed or challenged by the ‘community of experts’ attending the event.

Conference themes will include:

• What does the experience of the spring/summer 2020 lockdown mean for the green transport agenda and what positive learning can we take from it?

• What are the implications for the Transport Decarbonisation Plan (TDP) and UK progress on the 'Road to Zero'?

• How can the UK set the standard for road transport decarbonisation to the world as we approach CoP26 in Glasgow 2021

The LowCVP annual conference will also feature interactive debates, polls and surveys. A pre-event survey of LowCVP stakeholder opinions on the conference themes will be presented on the day and help to inform the discussions.

There will be opportunities for facilitated digital networking during the conference within an exhibition format with themed ‘stalls’ and one-to-one discussion capability.

Afternoon, parallel, facilitated break-out sessions will provide the opportunity for a deeper dive into the conference themes as they impact on specific sectors of road transport such as freight and how each can contribute to positive impacts as we emerge from lockdown and to the TDP and progress on the 'Road to Zero'.

The LowCVP's head of communications Neil Wallis said: "We intend to make the most of the latest digital technology to enable this event to stand out: there will be short, punchy talks, debates, voting on policy propositions and a variety of opportunities for interacting with speakers and other delegates...we may even try to sort out a digital drink or two for the networking!"

The conference is free to all delegates so book now.
