November 29, London: The inaugural day at the London Ev Show 2023 witnessed an electrifying start, showcasing groundbreaking innovations and important announcements that underscore London’s pivotal role in steering the electric vehicle (EV) revolution. Held at the ExCel London, this premier event convened industry leaders, policymakers, and innovators, setting the stage for an inspiring journey toward a sustainable future.

Kicking off the day's proceedings was an invigorating welcome address by Shariq AbdulHai, CEO of Valiant Business Media, emphasizing the imperative need for collaboration within the industry. He remarked, “This industry will not move as quickly as we want it to move if there's no collaboration”.

Throughout the day, the conference halls were abuzz with engrossing discussions and major announcements from esteemed entities like the Greater London Authority (GLA) and Transport for London (TFL).

One of the highlights included a significant announcement from Seb Dance, the Deputy Mayor of London for Transport, announcing the deployment of five new ultra-rapid charging hubs across the city. These hubs, part of an initiative led by Places for London, TFL's property company, aim to facilitate swift charging, enabling drivers to power up their vehicles in as little as 10 to 30 minutes.

Mr. Dance highlighted, "London is leading by example, with over a third of all charge points in the UK installed in our city so far. The joint venture for ultra-rapid charging hubs will make it even easier and more convenient for Londoners and local businesses to switch to electric vehicles."

The day also witnessed an incredible lineup of guests and panelists, drawing rave reviews from the audience. Attendees expressed immense satisfaction, describing the event as beneficial and informative, highlighting its significance in shaping the future of clean energy transportation.
