The UK’s world-leading automotive industry is preparing for an historic transition to electric vehicles. If we act rapidly, the UK can stay globally competitive and create an attractive environment for investors, securing jobs for the future and boosting the economy. The upcoming battery strategy will be a welcome step towards achieving this.
Green Alliance has engaged with stakeholders for its new report which explores recommendations what we believe should be incorporated into a battery strategy for the UK. These recommendations, taken together, will deliver high skilled jobs, boost the UK economy, and protect our legacy automotive sector.
On Wednesday 13 September 2023, our expert panellists from industry and public policy gave their perspectives on the UK battery and auto manufacturing industry and explored some of the opportunities and challenges, for the sector, its customers and the government, in meeting demand for a greener transport system.
The panel discussion included an audience Q&A, followed by networking with light refreshments.
