Today is the last day to get your nominations in for this year's Electric Vehicle Innovation and Excellence Awards (EVIEs).
There’s still just enough time to put forwards your nominees for the Innovation in V2G Award to ensure they’re in with a chance to take the top spot from last year's winner ViGiL (Vehicle-to-Grid Intelligent Control) from ByteSnap Design, Nortech, Grid Edge & Aston University.
Who should enter?
This award is designed to recognise development in what is tipped to be one of the most important technologies in the clean energy transition.
Nominations should include specific, technical detail behind how the nominee has developed vehicle-to-grid technologies, and case studies of deployment in real-world situations are especially welcomed.
For this award there is no geographical or time-based limitations, and judges will be asked to reflect on the merit of technologies that are ready for real-world testing or deployment and those still at the pilot phase.
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.
Create a profile on the EVIEs website here. You’ll need a few simple details such as name and email address, and to create a password for your EVIEs account. Click ‘save’ at the bottom of the page to create your account.
Once signed in, clicking ‘The Awards Categories’ will bring up all the entry information and eligibility criteria for each of this year’s categories. To start a submission click on the ‘Submissions’ tab, followed by ‘add new’.
Select which category you intend to enter and fill out the capture form. You’ll be prompted for mandatory details such as name of the entry, and you can add as much or as little detail as you like. Two supporting images and a supporting PDF document can also be attached to your entry.
If you want to save your progress to amend at a later date, click ‘save and continue later’. If you’re happy to submit your entry, click ‘save and submit’.
You can now add multiple entries from the same account. Simply make sure you’re signed up and follow steps two and three again for each submission you wish to make.
Sit back, relax and wait to see if your submission(s) make the shortlists when they are published in September 2021.
