On November 24, some of the biggest names involved in electric transport will be converging on the Design Museum for a day of talks and seminars around the subject of the electrification of London’s transport.

Bookended by keynote speeches given by Paul Priestman, formerly of groundbreaking transport design agency PriestmanGoode, and the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, the day will feature discussion panels on topics of EV ownership, public transport, public services, charging and infrastructure. The hottest topic will be the Mayor’s pledge to make the city’s transport net zero by 2030, and how that can be achieved.

Ahead of the big day, we spoke to various experts who will be there to join the debate, asking them just what the biggest roadblocks are we that face in the road to 2030. Scroll down to read their answers.
