Accelerating change: how digital technology can speed up the electric cars revolution

Posted by Somo Global

A must-attend event for those looking to shape their digital strategy and explore digital opportunities within the electric vehicles sector.

With the UK government taking an ambitious stance and bringing forward the deadline to ban sales of new fossil fuel vehicles from 2030, there’s not a lot of time left to take action.

Accelerating the rollout of electric cars across the British roads is a Herculean effort, but there’s a number of ways in which digital technology can help tip the balance and ensure both manufacturers, infrastructure suppliers, and consumers are ready for the shift.

So, as part of this year’s London Tech Week, we’re bringing together the industry’s leading experts to talk about the role of digital, and how it can help break the barriers, solve infrastructure and customer adoption challenges, and ensure the industry can seamlessly drive into the (electrifying) future.

Join us on Tuesday 21st September for a morning filled with action-triggering insights.

The webinar is set to kick off at 9:15am with presentations from Rachel Maclean MP (Transport Office, Minister for the Future of Transport UK) and Somo’s Chief Growth Officer, Rebecca Crook, who will share our exclusive consumer research findings and how digital fits in.

We’ll then kick off our panel discussion led by Sunday Times’ Transport Editor, Nicholas Hellen, providing you with a unique opportunity to hear directly from some of the world’s leading energy and automotive brands and pose your questions to them.

Meet our panel:
Chris Jackson (Centrica, Head of Fleet Partnerships) who works on enabling fleets in the UK to transition to EV at scale,
Graeme Cooper (National Grid, Project Director) who drives transport decarbonisation across the UK,
Fiona Howarth (Octopus Electric Vehicles, CEO) who heads up Octopus Electric Vehicles and champions the transition to EVs,
And more!
