A host of new categories have been added to next year’s Electric Vehicles Innovation & Excellence (EVIEs) Awards, designed to celebrate stellar achievements within the electric vehicle ecosystem.
Launched this summer, Current± publisher Solar Media announced the EVIEs with an initial list of 14 categories. However, following industry feedback, a raft of new categories has been added to the pool for the awards to represent a far greater breadth of the industry.
New categories added to the EVIEs 2020 include Chargepoint Manufacturer of the Year, Chargepoint Network of the Year, Charging Destination of the Year, and the Best New Product or Service category.
Entrants have until 22 November 2019 to submit their nominations, prior to a two-month long judging process. A complete list of judges is to be announced in due course.
Finalists for the EVIEs 2020 will be announced on 3 February 2020, with the winners set to be revealed at a gala dinner ceremony on 29 April 2020.
A full list of categories, eligibility criteria and details on how to enter can be found here.
