The deadline for nominations for this year’s Electric Vehicles Innovation and Excellence Awards (EVIEs) is fast approaching, however you can still enter to win the Public Sector Infrastructure Strategy of the Year.
Public sector bodies who have gone the extra mile over the last year could be in with a chance to take the crown from last year’s winner Hampshire County Council, at the event on 19 October 2021 at the Bristol Harbour Hotel in Bristol, UK.
Who should enter?
This award, sponsored by Schneider Electric, recognises local authorities, regional councils and other public sector bodies that have gone above and beyond in furthering the growth of electric vehicles by installing EV infrastructure.
All nominations should include details of overall schemes of works, installations and any planning or overall strategy that underpins the body’s commitment to electric vehicles.
While this is expected to focus on charge points, associated works: be it networks-related technologies to mitigate the increased demand due to EVs, battery storage, or others, will be considered too.
All works however must have been completed on or after 2 September 2020 and prior to the close of this year’s nominations on 27 August 2021.
How to enter?
