The United Kingdom's motoring industry organises a low-carbon motoring event on a yearly basis. This year's LCV 2011 started at the Rockingham Motor Speedway in Corby (Northamptonshire) yesterday.
Organised by Cenex, Britain's centre for excellence in fuel cell and low carbon technologies, this year's event is the fourth in a row and the biggest and best ever. The aim is to get key auto industry players under one roof to showcase the latest developments in the low-carbon field. Attendees include a wide array of manufacturers, fleet companies, alternative fuel experts and low carbon supply chain companies.
Some major exhibitors include Ashwoods, Arup, Delta Motor Sport, Allied Electric, Controlled Power Technologies, Toyota and Ricardo. Among others there will be speeches by the Minister for Business and Enterprise, Mark Prisk and Iain Gray, who is the man in charge of the Technology Strategy Board (TSB).
TSB and Arup will reveal more details about extensive electric vehicle trials undertaken in Britain over the last three months. The event will also see the launch of "Electric Corby" - an initiative set up by Bela Partnership, Cenex and Corby that aims to make Corby a world centre for clean technology and energy efficient living. Corby is situated in the heart of the country's motor sport valley.
The event is being held at Rockingham for the first time this year as Cenex had to find larger premises to accommodate the growing number of exhibitors.
