Zero Emission Mobility – Public Sector Challenge Event

Date: 22 January 2020
Location: Glasgow

About the event
This joint event from ETP, Scottish Enterprise, Energy Systems Catapult, Connected Places Catapult and Transport Scotland aims to highlight the major challenges facing the public sector in the transition to net zero green house gas emissions for transport and infrastructure to meet the 2045 target.

We seek to bring together key public sector decision makers, innovative zero emission mobility (ZEM) and integrated transport private sector businesses and potential funding mechanism bodies with a view to collaborate and push forward the net zero agenda. As an example, Call 5 is now open for the Can Do Innovation Challenge fund and we hope to work with attendees to hone challenges for submission, more info can be found here.

What to expect on the day
We will first hear from Transport Scotland who will set the scene by laying out the major issues and opportunities in Scotland over the next 12 to 24 months. Next there will be an over view of the Can Do Innovation Challenge fund and how this can be used to support the ZEM agenda in the public sector.

We will also hear from two example local authorities to present their side of the issue and the complexities they have faced. Following this there will be presentations from various public sector funding bodies, procurement mechanisms and innovation experts, accelerators and facilitators. Finally, the floor will be handed over to attending businesses that have exciting zero emission mobility solutions to allow them to pitch their ideas in a fast paced 5-minute window.
