Profile: Dr Colin Herron
With over 40 years’ experience in the automotive industry, I established Zero Carbon Futures in 2011 to support the growth of the electric vehicle industry and input into e-mobility policy. I use my experience and technical knowledge to try and plot technology trajectories for the sector and support and advise a number of our clients on how best to adapt to the introduction of EV. Right now, I am working with the Mayor of London and Transport for London on their EV infrastructure requirements for the future.
