Event description
Join us for the third part of our November energy series, a business lunch on electric vehicles!

About this Event

We are keeping a close eye on all updates in relation to COVID-19. Our November events are now online, and include the same opportunities to network, take part in live discussion and the option to do a 60 second pitch!

There are now more than 1 million EVs on the road, and the difference in impact is remarkable. Compared to gasoline-powered vehicles, emissions drop by 50% - 95%. EVs are starting to disrupt auto and oil business models because they are simpler to make, require less maintenance and no fossil fuels.

The road to a cleaner future is complicated but exciting. Join us for this business lunch to discuss electric vehicles and electric vehicle charging infrastructure with Network members TLT LLP, EcoMove and Alfen.

The Future Economy Network are happy to announce Network members TLT LLP are kindly sponsoring this event.

More information to be announced.

This event is part of The Future Economy Network's November Energy series. Each event is still a standalone event and you can attend as many or as little as you are able to.
