The future of fuel stations

Event date: April 22, 2021

Thursday, 22 April 2021, 11:00

In November 2020, the UK government outlined plans to ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2030. The move is supplemented by about £1.8 billion in support to encourage motorists to buy zero-emission vehicles. The government’s reasoning for this strategy is twofold: to improve the air quality in towns and cities and to support economic growth across the UK; and to contribute towards its ambition to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

On Thursday, 22 April 2021, RSK and law firm Mills & Reeve will host a webinar to discuss the issues relating to the future of fuel stations. RSK’s Warren Percival will participate in the one-hour event. Specifically, members of the panel will outline their views on what fuel stations will look like in the future if government targets are met. Will the ban inspire radical changes in society? Will motorists switch to zero-emission vehicles, thereby promoting a green economy and contributing to reducing the UK’s emissions? Other questions posed by Mills & Reeve will be on topics including the opportunities available to investors and the commercial opportunities for “offices, retail and leisure, to capitalise on the captive market”.

Warren will speak about RSK’s potential role in a reduced-emissions future. “The joint webinar will be a great opportunity for RSK to collaborate with industry insiders on the exciting prospects for this developing market,” he says. “There will be much for us to discuss, including the opportunities and challenges presented from a sustainability, as well as from an investment and development, perspective. I’m looking forward to discussing this with the other expert panellists.”

Ruth Andrew will chair the discussion. In addition to Warren Percival, Adam Wadlow from Barber Wadlow and Tom Hurst from Fastned will contribute their expertise.
