EV SUMMIT announces full list of panel speakers for 2022 event

    The annual EV SUMMIT, which returns for the fifth year, has announced its panel speakers for the 2022 event that takes place next week on December 12 and 13. This year the EV SUMMIT, which looks set to be bigger and better than ever, will focus on growth, investment and decarbonisation. 

    The event will take place at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School in partnership with Oxford City Council and Oxford County Council, and in association with Oxford University and Oxford Brookes University, to deliver on decarbonised transport in the UK and beyond.

    The two Oxford universities and the city council have pioneered technology and policy in the emobility sector, and the SUMMIT has led to significant projects coming into being. This includes Europe’s most powerful electric vehicle (EV) hub, Energy Superhub Oxford.

    The EV SUMMIT will once again see the world’s most significant gathering of global emobility experts across business and local and national governments come together to deliver on decarbonised transport in the UK and beyond for a more sustainable future. 

    The SUMMIT will feature 10 panels across two days covering the significant business issues on the rapid transition to emobiity. Each panel features discussions with leading experts from that space. 

    Panel sponsors include Visa, Shell Recharge, Improved Corporate Finance, Connected Kerb, Geotab, ABB, Auto Trader, BP Pulse, FLEETCOR and Scottish Power. Along with being a panel sponsor, Visa is also the headline partner for the panel event at the EV SUMMIT. Fleete and ElectriX will also be sponsors of the evening receptions.
