On 11th March, the UK government published the National Infrastructure Strategy alongside the Budget.
Government ministers have described this strategy as being ‘the biggest infrastructure revolution in living memory’. £100 billion will be spent on transforming the nation’s infrastructure, a significant chunk of which will be spent on improving transport links in the north of England and the midlands region. In addition to transport, the energy sector is likely to be a major recipient, as the government focuses on the investment that will be required to meet its 2050 net zero targets.
On the 13th and 14th July, The UK Infrastructure Policy & Investment Summit, will analyse the implications of the strategy in depth for both the public and private sectors.
Alongside the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, the Rt Hon Jesse Norman MP, who will be giving the keynote address, our Head of Electric and Autonomous Vehicles, Joachim Brandt has been asked to speak.
Joachim will be participating in the EVs and Smart Cities – the challenges to roll-out panel session on second day of the event.
