Fri 31 December 2004 View all news

The LowCVP Annual Conference on February 10th will provide the backdrop for one of the UK's largest and most diverse gatherings of low carbon and cleaner vehicles and related technologies.

LowCVP has also announced that the Conference will give delegates the opportunity to provide feedback to the Government's Climate Change Programme Review.

Timed to coincide with the launch of the permanent 'Green by Design' Exhibition at the Heritage Motor Centre, the temporary display will allow conference delegates, media and other visitors to view a wide range of 'greener' vehicles at first-hand, and to drive many of them.

Vehicles and technologies confirmed or anticipated to attend are being supplied by: Honda, Toyota, PSA Peugeot Citroen, Ford, BMW, MG Rover, Vauxhall, Nissan, ZEV Ltd, Zytek, Ricardo, Goingreen, Warwick University, the Motorsport Industry Association, Pi Technology, British Oxygen, Electric Mercury, Eneco, Prodrive, Organic Power Ltd and London Buses.

Those not in this list but interested in displaying relevant vehicles or technologies should contact the LowCVP Secretariat: secretariat@lowcvp.org.uk

The final session of the Conference will include facilitated workshops to provide Defra with feedback for the current review of the UK Climate Change Programme.

Up to five parallel workshops on different topics relating to the review will give delegates the chance to provide comments on the current programme and make suggestions for future policy approaches relating to the road transport sector.

Full details of the workshops will be issued by email to delegates who sign up for the conference prior to the event. (See conference joining link below.)
