With strong public support and an encouraging prevailing wind from within the EU, Europe stands on the brink of a revolution in motoring. The Commission has put electric vehicles at the heart of its commitment to the long-term goal of reducing carbon emissions by 60 per cent within the transport sector by 2050. Vice-President Siim Kallas has called for a 50 per cent reduction in the use of conventional cars – petrol and diesel – by 2030, and for a complete phase-out of such vehicles by 2050.
Our confirmed special guest speakers for this conference will include:

Just got back from the Tesla UK Launch event last night. I'll be putting pictures up in our Gallery soon! The event marked the launch of Tesla’s first sales showroom in Europe. The new showroom is located in Knightsbridge – one of the best areas to be in London, right around the corner from Harrods. I had the opportunity to meet some fantastic people, including Elon Musk as well as his wonderful sister and mother who flew in for the special occasion. They also revealed for the Roadster Sport, which according to Elon Musk “is as fast around the track as a Porsche GT3”. In the past, I’ve had the opportunity to drive the Roadster around a track and it is blazingly fast – I can’t imagine how this one could get any faster. I think this is a great start for Tesla and Europe will really launch the Tesla to new heights. In the meantime, I’ll look forward to the video of a Roadster Sport vs. a GT3!

A quick thank you to our delegates and supporters for your overwhelming response to our Electric Vehicle Infrastructure conference “Unlocking the Grid” which just took place this week! There was a great discussion and a wide range of people from all different industries. It was fantastic to see the enthusiasm for the infrastructure challenge. Also, it was interesting to see that there is much more to infrastructure development than meets the eye – but I guess that only means more avenues for truly creative thinking!
