LCV 2012

Once again returning to the Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedforshire, the event is expected to attract over 2,000 delegates as one of the UK’s premium low carbon vehicle events.

As well as a series of seminars, LCV 2013 incorporates a technical exhibition with a business to business focus, as well as ride and drive opportunities on the test track.

In its sixth year, the 2013 event will include seminars on battery electric vehicles, light-weighting, energy storage, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and hybrid systems. Speakers will include Jerry Hardcastle, Global Chief Marketability Engineer for Nissan, Neville Jackson Chief Technical and Innovation Officer for Ricardo and Graham Hoare, Global Director, Vehicle Evaluation and Verification at Ford.

Exhibitors confirmed for the event include Arcola Energy Ltd, The Dearman Engine Company, CMCL Innovations, Far-UK, Surface Transforms PLC, Influx, IPDI, Talman Associates Ltd, Vortex Exhaust Technology Ltd and WheelRight Ltd. Controlled Power Technologies will display its micro-mild hybrid system while Wrightbus will demonstrate its hybrid diesel-electric double decker bus.

EV drivers attending the event again be offered free recharging while they browse the show, thanks to APT Controls and the Source East Network which operates across the East of England.

Six fast charging points will be installed at the end of Millbrook’s mile straight, allowing attendees to drive to the event on electricity and leave their car to charge.

LCV 2013 runs over two days, September 4th and 5th, 2013. Details of how to register to attend are available at
