Automotive and Engineering – Led by Hethel Innovation

With the new UK environmental target set to ban the sale of all petrol and diesel cars by 2040, there hasn’t been a more pertinent time to find out more about the future of battery sustainability, and the evolution of the electric vehicle charging infrastructure. Will they be ready to support our milestone shift towards electric vehicles in the coming years? How far has this technology really got to come?

From super-efficient batteries through to future technology opportunities, a must attend track session has been unveiled at Venturefest East.

Venturefest East, being held on the 21st September at Newmarket Racecourse, is pleased to welcome a timely and poignant track session on Aerospace, Automotive and Engineering led by Hethel Innovation, a major player in supporting low-carbon technology initiatives in the East of England and beyond.

Leading entrepreneurs and experts from the field of low carbon technologies will join Hethel Innovation to share their own stories, giving valuable insights into the strengths and challenges faced by this evolving sector, as they prepare to shape the future of eco-tech for generations to come.

We will be joined by expert entrepreneurs who will unpack the concept of ‘Lightweight EV’, and the growth technologies supporting future applications for lightweight design and frame manufacture.

Covering many of the key questions surrounding this sector, we will also hear contributions on the developments of a low carbon infrastructure to support electric vehicles. As well as offering discussion around the revolutionary technology supporting the development of ‘sustainable super-efficient batteries’, before finally ‘whetting our appetites’ with what’s to be expected from future technologies.
