BSI: Decarbonise Transport: Achieve Zero-Emission Vehicles

What’s this webinar about?

As part of BSI’s Net Zero Week – and with a focus on road transport – this session will discuss the role emerging technologies are playing, supported by standards, in helping deliver zero-emission/carbon transport and vehicles.

Speakers from across the transport sector will also 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 will conclude with a roundtable discussion and a Q & A.
