Battery production in Europe

China dominates global battery production, but Europe and the UK is starting to make inroads. Britishvolt and Northvolt are two of the big names at the forefront of the shift, but can a more localised battery production ever hope to compete with the scale of China? Or is this the way to ensure car production remains in Europe? How are the OEMs reacting? We dig into this and more in the webinar, covering everything from gigafactories to sustainability.

What's the future of manufacturing?

Should car factories be nimble in the shift to electrification, or will scale be the key? Micro-factories aren't a new concept but are gaining in popularity thanks to start-up disruptors, yet legacy manufacturers are ploughing billions into enormous sites. Is a huge shift on the horizon?

The semiconductor crisis

The semiconductor crisis hit at just the wrong moment as retailers began to open up again. It’s clear the shortage isn’t going to be a quick fix, but what can industry and businesses do about it? 


Online vs bricks 'n' mortar

The pandemic led to big shifts in the car buying world, as retailers adapted to click and collect services to keep their businesses going. But is the future digital , or will we keep visiting a physical showroom to buy cars? 

The truth about autonomous cars

Manufacturers and governments are pushing autonomous driving technology, but how realistic are they being? Will it work, and do people want it? 

Electric cars: the infrastructure challenge

Electric cars offer a huge opportunity in terms of reducing pollution levels, but present equally as large infrastructure challenges to get the UK ready for mass adoption of BEVs. 

2021: the year the electric car comes of age?

Last year was a record one for electric car sales. With the 2030 ban on petrol and diesel now a step closer, electric cars will become far more established in the mainstream in 2021.
