The government wants to phase out petrol and diesel cars from 2030. So how can this ambitious target – which has been brought forward by a decade – be delivered?
Key policy issues, such as the treatment of hybrid vehicles, are still to be settled, but the government will also have to address a series of complex questions. What can it do to encourage consumers to switch vehicles? What needs to done to roll out charging infrastructure? And what will this mean for the distribution and supply of electricity?
On our panel to discuss the challenges involved in the electric vehicle switchover will be:
- Dr Aruna Sivakumar, Director of the Urban Systems Lab at Imperial College London
- Further speakers to be confirmed
The event will be chaired by Tom Sasse, Associate Director at the Institute for Government.
We would like to thank The Forum, Imperial College London’s policy engagement initiative for their support for this event.
