I attended the two-day summit, (26-27 June 2019) here in Oxford, at the Said Business School, which is part of the University of Oxford. This summit brought together key players involved in electric vehicles, energy, information technology and charging infrastructure. The purpose was to explore how we advance full e-mobility.
About the summit
The summit was a business forum based on the dual themes of business engagement and thought leadership from some informed speakers in this sector. Amongst the speakers were:
- Beatrice Bigois MD, Customers, EDFE
- Guenter Butschek CEO and Managing Director, Tata Motors
- Anja Van Niersen CEO, Allego
- Lucy Craig Technology and Innovation Director, DNV GL
- Mahesh Babu CEO, Mahindra Electric
There were a number of exhibits on display showcasing the latest in electric vehicle technology including NIO, a pioneer in China’s premium electric vehicle market. As well as EDF Energy, Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks, Lucy Group, Enel X, NewMotion, Oxford Computer Consultants, BMW Mini, Jaguar and Harley Davidson.
Around 300 of the most connected people in the EV space attended this event. It is likely, that many of the summits participants will play an active role in the development of the e-mobility industry. The Oxford EV Summit, was organised by Oxford City Council, in association with Green TV and Electric Drives.
