Tying in with the COP26 Conference also to be held in Glasgow this autumn, this event will focus on the key theme of Decarbonisation, touching on the related topics of resilience, conservation, recycling, ecological issues, the circular economy and sustainability throughout the rail infrastructure and rolling stock spheres.

There will be presentation sessions from industry thought leaders, focusing on the key topics, challenges and opportunities in the rail decarbonisation story, across both embedded and operational carbon.

There will be parallel breakout sessions on the hot topics of traction decarbonisation: Hydrogen, Battery and Low-cost electrification.

The agenda is currently being finalised and will be released shortly, but rest assured there will be ample opportunity for the networking and live Q+A that Unlocking Innovation has built it's success on pre-COVID - We're looking forward to seeing everyone in person again too!

Driving the Electric Revolution Industrialisation Centres 
DER-IC is a UK-wide project to accelerate delivery of Power Electronics, Machines and Drives (PEMD) solutions for the global market. It forms a network of expertise with four regional centres across the UK. We connect industry with researchers to develop and scale up PEMD technologies and manufacturing processes. The centres were set up by UK Research and Innovation in 2020 as part of the Driving the Electric Revolution Challenge.  The centres have access to over £300m of PEMD equipment for developing, testing and manufacturing products. In addition, the centres are investing £28M in new state-of-the-art open-access equipment to help grow the UK supply chain and fill gaps in the UK’s current capability. The centres will make the UK globally recognised as the centre of excellence in the PEMD manufacturing process. To find out more, visit the website www.der-ic.org.uk
