On the evening of 24th November the first Fully Charged AWARDS, powered by green technology pioneers myenergi, were hosted at the RAI Amsterdam alongside the Fully Charged LIVE Europe event which runs throughout the weekend (until 26th November).
Nominees were selected after a ‘large-scale survey’ of the Fully Charged SHOW audience, then initial candidates were curated by the team itself, plus a panel of 15 energy and transportation experts, before arriving at the finalists in each category.
Voting opened online on 9th November and closed on 16th November and attracted several thousand Electric Vehicle drivers who voted for their winners in the 15 categories of the first ‘consumer choice’ awards for clean energy and electric vehicles.
Winners were announced in front of a sizable audience of industry leaders in the RAI’s stunning auditorium. An entertaining evening was hosted by German stand-up comedian, Henning Wehn, and Fully Charged SHOW founder Robert Llewellyn, to reveal the winners, including the Eden Project, Octopus Energy, VW, Porsche, MG, Fiat, but the biggest winners with 5 trophies, was Tesla.
The evening concluded with music as globally renowned vegan BOSH! chefs, Henry Firth, and Ian Theasby, who took to the decks after a busy day of live cookery demonstrations on the Zero Carbon Kitchen feature at the Fully Charged LIVE Europe event.
Fully Charged’s CEO Dan Caesar had this to say,
“Wow, what an evening! We were blown away by the support we have received for our first ever Fully Charged AWARDS. This was the first consumer voted awards for clean energy and electric vehicles and we would like to thank all those who took the time to vote and help us choose our winners. Congratulations to all our nominees as well as the winners and we are looking forward to 2024’s awards already!”.
myenergi co-founder, Jordan Brompton, added:
“The 2023 Fully Charged AWARDS was an amazing event. Bringing together leaders and pioneers from across electrification, it was the perfect opportunity to celebrate not just progress towards the EV transition, but also the acceleration of renewables and the smart homes of tomorrow.
