After a rather lacklustre embrace of electric vehicles (EV) in the early years of the technology, a phenomenal acceptance by motorists has since emerged.
This webinar will discuss first-hand experiences from the UK and Uganda.
Projections of global growth rates in the EV market are now some of the most positive in the whole transport industry. Rising environmental concerns, favourable government policies, and attractiveness for investors are behind this positive development, among other factors.
Urban authorities are playing a particularly strong role in making the case for electric vehicles as a key element of more sustainable, innovative and smarter urban mobility strategies. Experiences by metropoles in various geographies have unsurprisingly converged in various respects, but also diverged in many others. One thing has however increasingly stood out universally – a growing sense of urgency to accelerate progress.
In this webinar, we have an opportunity to gather some first-hand perspectives by the Head of Transport Innovation in the Milton Keynes Council – Brian Matthews, and the founding CEO of the pioneer Electric Vehicle maker on the African Continent (Kampala-based Kiira Motors Corporation) – Paul Musasizi.
We shall end with an academic perspective from Dr Charles Mbalyohere, who will draw on his current academic research to examine the implications of the transition to electric vehicles for both urban mass mobility and improved energy access in new frontiers.
