Electric Vehicle Summit 2014
The Electric Vehicle Summit provides a platform for knowledge sharing between the automotive sector, government and academia to share knowledge about the development of the EV Sector in Surrey.
Surrey has become one of the UK’s leading centres for the automotive sector. The University of Surrey is one of the leading centres for research into EV technology. Many of the leading companies in the sector are based in the county, ranging from Toyota and McLaren to Frazer Nash and Gordon Murray Design - two of the leading innovators in electric vehicle technology.
Surrey County Council are keen to encourage this growth in the sector and provide what is needed to facilitate the growth of the sector, and provide the right environment to support an emerging supply chain of new technology businesses around the county.
At the Summit, Surrey County Council will facilitate a senior level discussion about the sector's potential, and opportunities for growth, which will include contributions from government, policy makers and academics.
There will also be the opportunity to discuss key trends and developments in funding, technology, innovation and application.
The ambition is to use this event to establish a Surrey EV Network which would provide a focus for future collaboration between the key partners.
