Driving the future – electrifying the industry

05/04/2018

Redleaf Communications is hosting a conference on Wednesday 25 April to explore the exciting range of opportunities arising from the relentless growth in Electric Vehicles.

Driving the future – electrifying the industry

Children born now will never actually drive a car – in the conventional sense, at least – by the time they are able to apply for their first driver’s licence.

Furthermore, it’s increasingly likely that the vehicles of the future will be powered either by electricity, hydrogen or another hybrid solution, replacing the current petrol/diesel hybrids.

This trend is already growing in momentum. The UK and France have banned sales of petrol and diesel vehicles in their countries by 2040. Because of these developments, as well as the CO2 scandal at VW three years ago, the scope of this industry has broadened and these activities are starting to change our perspectives on transport as a whole.

However, the spate of news around recent fatal autopilot crashes shows that the technology is still in very early stages of development and regulation.

But it is a technology that is being heavily promoted and invested in by governments across the world as they seek to be first-movers in the space as well as control pollution levels.

The direction of this industry is yet to be set. But clearly investment opportunities will arise. With this in mind, Redleaf Communications is hosting a conference on Wednesday 25 April to explore the exciting range of opportunities arising from the relentless growth in Electric Vehicles.
