EPISODES

Series RATIONALE

The need for cleaner air and circular supply chains has shifted attention to the need for the mobility sector to radically transform.

In Europe and the UK strong political will, regulations & Net Zero targets, technology advancements and socioeconomic factors are driving major transformation in the automobile industry to support a cleaner environment with reduced emissions and circular supply chains.

Regulators, policy makers, OEMs, infrastructure & engineering organisations, technologists, researchers & investors are focusing their efforts on scaling out strategies to maximize value delivery in areas of electrification, connectivity & mobility.

Series OBJectives

We seek to better understand how the key activities within the key sectors will evolve over the next decade to meet NetZero targets.

To do so, with this series we would like to examine:

  • Regulatory roadmap, expectations from key industry actors, government incentives and impact of Brexit on supply chain
  • Investment appetite
  • Ramp-up of electric vehicles
  • Developments in infrastructure and vehicle to grid application
  • Battery reuse and the circular economy 
  • Connectivity and the role of data and technology
  • Future mobility

Join the conversation and help us on the road to NetZero.

Beyond Journeys would not have been possible without the generous gift of time from the guests and the support of Tapan Trivedi
