There’s just three days left before the deadline for this year's Electric Vehicle Innovation and Excellence Awards (EVIEs) shuts.
Make sure to get in your nominations for Best Consumer Proposition (Utility/Energy) before 27 August to ensure their achievements get recognised at the awards ceremony in Bristol in October.
Following OVO Energy’s First Nationwide Vehicle-to-Grid Retail Offering win last year, who will take the top spot at EVIEs 2021?
Who should enter?
This category looks to recognise utilities or energy companies that have brought to market a consumer-facing proposition, product or service.
Proposition can include different services from entities outside of the energy sector as well as from utilities or energy companies. Entries will be scored on the scope of the proposition, innovative approaches used, customer satisfaction and the overall impact of the EV strategy.
There are no geographical or time-based parameters attached to this category, however additional credence will be given to propositions to have launched or achieved certain milestones after 2 September 2020.
How to enter?
Entering the EVIEs could not be simpler. Our nominations process is entirely online and entrants can submit into as many categories as they wish to from the same profile.
