    Formula E

 Motorsport in its early days helped develop the car from a novel feat of engineering to utilitarian and high-performance vehicles we see today. As the world evolves with more sustainable modes of transport and e-mobility, motorsport itself has also had to change to retain real-world engineering relevance. In the session you’ll hear about how a new breed of motorsport, such as Formula E, is pioneering cutting edge technologies that not only produce world-class sport, but are actively enhancing and revolutionising the vehicles and transport systems we use today.

When it comes to climate change, over a third of global emissions come from transport. Not only is this becoming a huge problem for the environment and people who breath in dirty air, but an enormous opportunity to decarbonise and innovative alternative low-carbon solutions. Automakers are under pressure to change, rapidly, and develop innovative low-carbon an electric alternatives. Enter the world of sport, and prominently motorsport, and how a cutting-edge series such as Formula E is not only helping some of the largest car brands develop new technologies, but inspiring and encouraging consumers to be more conscious and aware of how their transport decisions can have an enormous impact in the race against climate change.

Session Key takeaways: 

    • How motorsport is at the coalface in solving some of the world’s most technical e-mobility challenges.
    • How sport can be leveraged as a platform for change; inspiring, educating and entertaining consumers into more sustainable lifestyles.
    • How and where the electrification of transport will take us over the next decade
