Hence we will be supporting the launch of the first Electrical Vehicle Road Tour (EVRT) in the Middle East, organised by Ben Pullen, Founder and CEO of Global EVRT and MSc in Energy Management Alumnus. We are very proud to support this project and Ben's vision to accelerate both the adoption of electric vehicles and the transition to a lower carbon economy.
