Driving the Electric Revolution - Webinar Series

Posted on 30/04/2020

The "Engage with..." DER webinar series aims to give companies a platform to present their PEMD journeys, activities, challenges and much more.

It aims to give companies a platform to present:

  • Who they are and what they do.
  • Their PEMD growth journey/roadmap and what they are doing in PEMD.
  • Their challenges and future PEMD supply chain requirements, with a view of exploring future opportunities for partnerships/collaborations/projects.

With a vested interest in growing UK capability and community in PEMD, this webinar series is a chance to:

  • Identify valuable partners
  • Build project consortiums
  • Articulate challenges
  • Gain supply chain knowledge
  • Drive new connections
  • Find creative solutions

All with the aim for you to seize the economic opportunities from the global transition to clean technologies and electrification.


Upcoming Webinars 


Engage with…Turbo Power Systems | 6 Aug, 3 PM | Register now
