Yesterday, the EValu8 team hosted a free event designed to help people learn all they need to know about Electric Vehicles. With just shy of 100 places booked, an impressive line-up of expert speakers and the sun shining, we were set for a fantastic day.

We are thrilled to report that the conference was a big success with high expectations being met. Our very own Keith Bevis set the scene for the day, pondering ‘What is the Fuss about EVs?’ Our speakers and exhibitors helped answer the question emphatically as the day progressed.

Throughout the day we received positive feedback from partners, sponsors and delegates alike. There were plenty of laughs, some exciting presentations and practical discussions.

Speakers included Norman Baker, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport, whose talk generated 15 minutes of questions and discussion. We also heard from Ian McDonald from Future Transport Systems about the future for the EV sector and emobility.

The general opinion of industry experts was that we are at the end of the beginning for the Electric Vehicle sector, and at the start of industry growth. Positive news – Evalu8 can help with advice and funding initiatives.

Five Electric Vehicles were in attendance, giving people a wonderful opportunity to explore the cars and pose questions to the manufacturers. Particularly popular was the pure electric Renault Zoe and the hybrid Vauxhall Ampera.  Ian Allen from Vauxhall Motors presented too, offering his industry perspective on the future of the EV sector.

The conference was a huge success and we would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work and support.

In fact, it was so well received that we are talking with our key sponsors and the Regional Transport Forum about making it an annual event. This will keep everyone fully informed of new developments and latest news… especially important as the Electric Vehicle is going from strength to strength.
