Midlands at the epicentre of the future EV ecosystem: Exploring the role of the Circular Economy Workshop

Midlands at the epicentre of the future EV ecosystem: Exploring the role of the Circular Economy Workshop

17th February 2023

Face-to-Face Industry Workshop

Venue: University of Warwick Campus - Warwick Conferences - Scarman

As we enter 2023, we are one step closer to the UK Electric Vehicle (EV) goal for 2030. Electric Vehicle (EV) adoption has increased, and more companies have expanded their EV product offerings over the past few years. How businesses are going to work together and manage the exponentially increased quantity of end-of-life batteries remains at the top of the question list. To tackle this, we recognise the importance of involving a range of voices across the electric vehicle ecosystem.

We are seeking to work with related key stakeholder groups, that's why we'd love for you to join us and contribute your own insights and expertise to these efforts and network with other colleagues across the sectors.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together key stakeholders to consider how adopting the principles of a more circular economy, could position the Midlands at the heart of the future electric vehicle ecosystem. With a focus on passenger vehicles, and with a particular focus on batteries, we will start to co-design the new business models that enable the future transition.

Repowering the Black CountryLink opens in a new window

Repowering the Black Country is one of seven industrial cluster decarbonisation projects funded by BEIS and UKRI. The Black Country Industrial Cluster consists of more than 3000 energy-intense manufacturing businesses. Our project is supporting the national industrial decarbonisation strategy by developing approaches which work in the Black Country and can then be applied more widely.

The project is about providing cost-efficient energy infrastructure across the Black Country; helping companies benefit from new supply chain opportunities in the circular economy; and supporting resource efficiency initiatives in manufacturing operations.

Role of WMG and Loughborough University

Identify circular supply chain opportunities appropriate to the Black Country and develop a portfolio of example ‘use cases’ to guide economic planners and hub designers
