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 Transaction of the Year, aimed at recognising the increasing M&A and financing of charging infrastructure taking place in the sector.
Who should enter?
This category has been introduced to recognise the significant amount of capital and finance the electric vehicle sector is attracting and, as a result, we’re expecting to hear not just from companies active in the EV ecosystem, but also financiers, advisory firms and legal entities offering services to the sector.
The award is open, but not limited to, companies that have attracted or raised finance or investment, been involved in M&A activity or refinanced portfolios of infrastructure.
Any ‘transaction’ must have been completed on or after 3 June 2018 and prior to the close of this year’s nominations window.
While we acknowledge some details may not be able to be shared, the more detailed the submission the better for our judges to recognise its impact. All nominations are provided on a confidential basis and will not be shared beyond the judging panel.
