About this event

As the number of Electric Vehicles increases, the energy demands of these vehicles will become more of an issue.

The presentation given by Pete James will outline the power requirements of electric vehicles and the issues of storage, supply and generation.
Ben Godfrey from Western Power will talk about the pure electric bus routes now in service in the UK.
Robert Evans from the Centre of Excellence for Low Carbon and Fuel Cell Technologies (Cenex) will talk about the physical infrastructure required.  Cenex has helped clients to install more than 650 charge points in the East and West Midlands. Myles Barker is an experienced technical specialist with a background in biofuels and renewable energy.  He joined Cenex in 2011 and is involved in the delivery and project management of electric vehicle charging infrastructure installations and government grant applications throughout the Midlands (Plugged in Places).  He is also helping manage installations of rapid and fast chargers in Cheltenham and Gloucester and for the London Borough of Hackney.  After completing a PhD in Biochemistry, Myles studied as a post-doctorate in bio-hydrogen production from algae and went on to work for the Homegrown Cereals Authority as an Industrial Uses Manager promoting grain and oilseed use for biofuels and providing advice to DfT and the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership on biofuel policy development.   
This event is co-hosted by the Automotive Road Transportation Systems (ARTS) Professional Network.
