Electric vehicles are silently arriving to our streets. But, they will soon be more than the means of transportation. They will be storage units for electricity produced by photovoltaic panels on the house in whose garage they are parked and they will also heat that house. This symbiosis of electric cars with our homes signals new approaches to urban planning, building design, energy generation, storage and distribution, and transportation. Electric vehicles will be the mobile part of this new system.

The conference will highlight the prospects, challenges and opportunities in developing these new relationships between energy, buildings and vehicles. It is of interest to urban planners, architects, building services engineers, electricity providers, house builders, transportation engineers, vehicle suppliers and buyers.

A CPD certificate will be provided for delegates.
