Jeremy Yapp began his professional life managing an independent retail business. He worked for some years in the Australian Parliament and then in several energy and environment policy areas in the UK Civil Service. For BEAMA he represents the supply chain of smart metering and smart data, IoT, distributed energy storage and EV infrastructure.
He is an advisor to EnergyREV, an academic consortium supporting smart local energy systems, and is currently leading a Working Group of the EV Energy Taskforce to help facilitate smart EV charging.
With the Government bringing forward the ban on sales of new petrol/diesel cars and vans to 2030, and hybrids in 2035, the need for companies to start introducing electric vehicles onto their fleets has become even more urgent. This year will see lots of new EVs come to market giving more choice than ever before, but there are many learnings for businesses when it comes to choosing the right vehicles, understanding the range of technologies and, perhaps most challenging, establishing an effective workplace charging infrastructure. The Electric Fleet conference will draw on the knowledge of the UK’s top EV experts who will provide best practice advice to ensure you have a pain-free journey to electric.
