Recorded: 18 January 2021 (14:00 - 15:20 UK time)
What’s this webinar about?
As part of BSI’s Net Zero Week – and with a focus on road transport – this session discusses the role emerging technologies are playing, supported by standards, in helping deliver zero-emission/carbon transport and vehicles.
Speakers from across the transport sector explore zero-emission enabling technologies including battery EVs, materials, power electronics, motors and drives (PEMD), and technology for use in freight and HGVs.
The webinar conclude with a roundtable discussion and a Q & A.
Who is this webinar for?
- Vehicle manufacturers
- The automotive/vehicle supply chain
