DESCRIPTION

As part of BSI’s Net Zero Week – and with a focus on road transport – this session will discuss the role emerging technologies are playing, supported by standards, in helping deliver zero-emission/carbon transport and vehicles.Speakers from across the transport sector will also explore zero-emission enabling technologies including battery EVs, materials, power electronics, motors and drives (PEMD), and technology for use in freight and HGVs.The webinar will conclude with a roundtable discussion and a Q & A.

AGENDA / DISCUSSION TOPICS

2. Future of materials light-weighting – Stella Job, Sustainability Manager, Composites UK

3. Developing a power electronics supply chain – Alastair McGibbon, Head of Collaborative R&D, Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult and AESIN PEMD Workstream Lead

4. Zero-emission technologies in Freight Transport – Anthony Velazquez, Head of Environment and Decarbonisation, TRL

15:00 – 15:20 Q&A Chaired by Katerina Busuttil, Senior Standards Manager, British Standards Institution (BSI)

PARTICIPANTS

Katerina Busuttil
Katerina has been working at The British Standards Institution (BSI) since 2015, supporting key aspects of mobility, materials and manufacturing. This covers a broad range, from the more traditional and established aspects, through to new areas of innovation across the sectors.She is currently programme lead for the BSI standards strand of the Faraday Battery Challenge, which has been addressing health and safety in the battery manufacturing process and environmental impact

Jacqui Murray

Deputy Director of the £318m million Faraday Battery Challenge Jacqui helps lead government investment to develop batteries that are cost-effective, high-quality, durable, safe, low-weight and recyclable. Her background in environmental regulation coupled with knowledge of the steel industry provides industrial relevance in her role as a Visiting Professor (Royal Academy of Engineering) at the University of Leicester, where she enhances the engineering programme. A keen STEM ambassador, Jacqui takes an active leadership approach on diversity and inclusion throughout her work. Autocar’s Top 100 Women in Automotive based on Seniority and Influence in 2020.

Stella Job
Stella has worked for Composites UK since 2013, in addition to consultancy work. She is active in supporting the composites industry to be more sustainable in recycling, bio-based materials and understanding life cycle impact. She works with industry, Catapult centres, academia and international trade associations to identify and progress strategic technologies and business solutions, working towards a more sustainable future. She is Chair of the Composites Leadership Forum Sustainability Working Group, member of EuCIA Sustainability WG and Global Composites Sustainability Coalition. Stella provides technical support for Composites UK events and introductions and information to support our membership.

Alastair McGibbon
Alastair has over 35 years’ experience in the electronics industry and has spent much of the last 15 working across the UK Power Electronics Supply Chain and helping to build UK capability and capacity.He is currently Head of Collaborative R&D at the CSA Catapult, which has a strong focus on helping companies to underpin Net Zero by exploiting cross-sectoral opportunities in wide bandgap-based power electronics.

 Anthony Velazquez
Dr Anthony Velazquez is TRL’s head of environment and decarbonisation. He is responsible for the creating and delivering cost-efficient innovative technical solutions to mitigate the negative environmental externalities of transport. He is an expert in low carbon technologies for heavy duty fleets and energy systems. Before joining TRL, he worked in academia as a researcher in hydrogen systems policy and as a lecturer in sustainable transport. In the private sector he has also worked as supply chain manager for a vehicle manufacturer and in engineering management for more than a decade.
