Nominations for the inaugural Electric Vehicle Innovation and Excellence Awards (EVIEs) are now open, and Current± is profiling each of this year’s categories.
Amongst the categories this year is the Charging Destination of the Year award, reserved for individual charging locations that have surpassed consumer expectations and provided best of class customer experience for EV drivers.
Who should enter?
Destination charging is essential to the mass adoption of electric vehicles and companies in the sector have learnt very quickly that getting the consumer experience correct, and ensuring it is as seamless as possible is pivotal to the success of the EV sector.
To qualify, all destinations must have at least two operational EV charging bays and have been operational prior to the close of the nominations window on 22 November 2019. Our judges will be looking at available charging infrastructure, accessibility, customer facilities and overall satisfaction.
