Where & When? JUICE will be launched in London, on 8th November 2019, as part of GREEN GB WEEK, and to be successful, it needs to have an impact on those that join us. To do that, we have taken in to account a number of key factors to ensure we achieve this the RIGHT speakers and the RIGHT content. 

Content: We are in dialogue with UK Government and other experts to ensure that JUICE attracts the highest-level speakers, including Ministerial attendance from the likes of BEIS. We are also identifying other Experts that can add weight to the overall programme on the day. The Theme will mean that the Sessions flow nicely from one to the other, and we will finish off with a Q&A and Debate with Interactive Voting. 

The Audience: Delegates will be LARGE LAND OWNERS Government, local authorities, NHS, big corporates like British Land, etc. Hotel chains, supermarket chains, business and retail parks, construction companies that are building new commercial or residential projects, bus companies/stations, train companies/stations and also the UK petrol forecourt owners they ALL have to put charging in. And then there is INVESTORS. This market is ripe for investment, so we will be looking at the banks and venture capitalist firms.

In summary, the JUICE audience HAVE to do this, but many dont know HOW to go about it, are not sure if they CAN, are fearful that the GRID CANNOT COPE, etc. Theres confusion And where there is confusion in a market theres an opportunity!                                       

A need for a solutionWe believe JUICE will be it. 

Green GB Week


Clean growth is a true British success story. Since we introduced the Climate Change Act ten years ago we have shown the world that we can cut greenhouse gas emissions, while at the same time increasing jobs and growth in every corner of the country.

Now we are going further, which is why we put a commitment to maximising the opportunities of the global shift to clean growth at the heart of our modern Industrial Strategy.

2018 saw the launch of GREEN GB WEEK, a celebration of all things clean and green in the UK, and part of the Programme was the hugely successful EV Roadshow.

We took innovative EV technology to 4 cities in 5 days, and 2019 will see us do the same again, reaching a climax in London… with JUICE!
