Welcome to It Only Takes E Minute, where I'll introduce you to the members of a brand new supergroup.

In an effort to continually assess the impact on the planet, Formula E founder Alejandro Agag has put together a new global advisory board to consider and provide advice on various subjects including business and media, plus emissions, electric vehicles and sustainability.

The group will be led by Christiana Figueres, who created the Paris climate agreement, and Alain Prost, long time racer and current Formula E team owner, with Agag, Charles Chao of SINA, Gerd Mauser of Jaguar Racing, former F1 team principal Martin Whitmarsh, Marco Parroni of Julius Baer and reigning Formula E champion Lucas di Grassi all also on board.

Prost says: "Being with Formula E since the very beginning I've seen first hand how it has grown and developed, not only as a championship but also the impact it's already having on the road car industry."
