The conference addresses energy saving issues related to climate change, one of the key themes at the G8 Summit in Gleneagles, July 6-8.
The Connaught petrol/electric hybrid system is the brainchild of Tim Bishop and Tony Martindale and has to date received almost £0.5m worth of funding from the Energy Saving Trust with 17 patents pending on its technology.
Connaught has beaten mainstream manufacturers in the race to produce a high performance energy-efficient sports car. The first ever V10 hybrid engine is fitted into the Connaught Type-D sports coupé.
Tests recently conducted at the Vehicle Emissions Laboratory (VEL) at Millbrook Proving Ground demonstrated an overall reduction in CO2 emissions of almost 15% over the performance of a regular petrol engine.
