Moving to Electric: the role of hybrid and range extender technologies.
The major automotive companies are investing heavily in the development of electric vehicles (EVs) and we can expect to see growing numbers of electric cars on the roads over the next decade. Related industries are emerging, in areas such as charging infrastructure, battery technology and innovative engine design.
This breakfast briefing aims to address the investment opportunities emerging in hybrid and range extender technologies and to discuss the role of these technologies in an EV world. Typical questions to be posed will include:
- are hybrid vehicles simply an interim step on the path to full electric?
- what is the role of range extender technology for electric vehicles?
- should investors be searching for a technology 'winner' in EVs or is there space for multiple technologies?
- to what extent are pure electric vehicles dependant upon improvements in battery technology?
- what is the scope for combining electric drive trains with new technologies such as light weight carbon fibre materials?
- will there be a role for small innovative technology companies in the EV space, or are the OEMs set to dominate the market?
Panelists will include:
Ian Foley - Williams Hybrid Power
Nicholas Gill - Aeristech
Steve Cousins - Axon Automotive
