Green technologies showcased at transport events

Warwickshire is at the forefront of green transport technologies that are going through a major global transformation. Three recent and upcoming events look at these challenges and provide opportunities for industry to learn and collaborate.

The county of Warwickshire is a leader in vehicle design, development and manufacturing in the UK. From offsite dumpers made in Cubbington to large electric motors used in naval ships to aircraft braking and control systems to Aston Martin hypercars and everything in between, it can be found here in the county.

Transport is going through major global transformation around decarbonisation and autonomy, so it comes as no surprise that the city and county are home to some of the leading conference and trade shows around net zero vehicles and decarbonisation.

Micromobility UK, organised by Warwick Manufacturing Group in its second year, was recently held at NAEC Stoneleigh Park. The UK’s only live, dedicated micromobility event, it included exhibitors of smaller vehicles on two, three and four wheels and, as well as trialling vehicles, attendees heard from speakers discussing the latest data from industry and technology experts and listened to panel discussions.

Next month sees the annual return of Rail Live at the Long Marston Rail Innovation Centre, home of rail technology company Porterbrook. The event takes place on June 21st and 22nd and is the only exhibition to bring the entire rail industry together in a real railway environment. It includes the largest outdoor rail exhibition in the UK, attracting more than 5,000 rail professionals a year, representing all aspects of the industry, including developments in hydrogen and electric rail propulsion.

The Big Zero Show, on June 20th at Coventry Building Society Arena, will cover a range of net zero issues and include information on electrifying transport solutions. Later in June sees the NEC host Battery Cells & Systems Expo which will bring together automotive manufacturers, electric utilities, battery system integrators, cell manufacturers and the entire manufacturing supply chain. It is a truly unique showcase as companies from around the world will use the show to launch products and demonstrate their technology to an audience of over 4,500 professionals.

Battery Cells & Systems Expo, Vehicle Electrification Expo, The Advanced Materials Show and The Advanced Ceramics Show bring together four connected industries for two days of networking, lead generation and education at the NEC, Birmingham. A four-track, free conference featuring global experts covers the latest innovations and developments across these four exciting industries.

These events are showcasing new and emerging decarbonisation technologies and providing opportunities for our local supply chain to exhibit and engage and collaborate with local and global industry. Invest Coventry & Warwickshire will have a presence at all of these events. If you would like to speak to us about the support we provide, drop us a note via our website, and we’ll see you at one of these events next month!
