Jeppe Juul, recently appointed president of the board of Transport & Environment (T&E), the Brussels-based organisation that helped break the dieselgate scandal, in conversation with FORESIGHT on his hopes and frustrations about the future of EVs.
This interview with Ole Bigum, head of operations at K2 management, a Danish consultancy providing engineering services for developers of wind and solar power, is part of a series of interviews that FORESIGHT will publish ahead of the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM9) and Nordic Clean Energy Week (NCEW), which will take place in Copenhagen and Malmo in May 2018.
