Events we will be at as well as great EV outings to get involved with
July 2020 – It’s a bit of a funny time to be talking about events at the moment, we are looking forward to getting out and meeting people again and talking all things EV – but only when it’s safe to do so again. So at the moment there are a couple of events on the horizon but we think for us they are going to be in 2021 (which feels like a long way away at the moment!)
8th October 2020
Clean Air Day, UK
Clean Air Day is now in its 4th year and takes place tomorrow, on Thursday 8th October. Led by Global Action Plan, Clean Air Day is the UK’s largest air pollution campaign, it began back in 2017 and at DriveElectric we’ve been marking the occasion too for the last 4 years…
29th, 30th & 31st of October & 1st of November 2020
Fully Charged Electric Drive-in Cinema
If you’ve not had many adventures in your electric car this year then this event is for you: Fully Charged has launched its first fully ELECTRIC DRIVE-IN CINEMA! The fully electric drive-in will run for a limited time only this October outdoors at Farnborough International and will feature TENET, the highly anticipated new blockbuster from director Christopher Nolan.
The 2020 Fully Charged event has understandably been rescheduled to the 18th, 19th & 20th June 2021. The Venue remains the same though so Fully Charged LIVE will take place at Farnborough International. The Fully Charged team promise that the 2021 show will be BETTER & BIGGER with more visitor attractions and more exhibits than ever before. We can’t wait to see you there!
For Clean Air Day 2019 some of the team who’s commute isn’t via an electric car (or within walking distance) have pledged to either test working from home for the day or taking public transport (thanks Ellen and Gemma!). That’ll take the DriveElectric team to just over 60% low carbon commuters for the day, small changes can make a big difference if a lot of people across the country take part!
Once again, the Fully Charged Show came to life at Silverstone Circuit as ‘Fully Charged LIVE’. Billed as being ‘Bigger, Better and Busier’ than last year’s event Fully Charged LIVE 2019 didn’t disappoint. With an extra day added to this year’s line up, over 10,000 attendees, 100 exhibitors and over 30 live talks sessions the 3-day event was packed with all things electric.
The First Fully Charged show live event…. and what an event it was!After eight years and more than 300 episodes, Robert Llewellyn’s Fully Charged, a YouTube show dedicated to the future of energy & transport, was brought to life as a ‘Fully Charged LIVE’ a fun-filled exhibition for thousands of electric vehicle and renewable energy enthusiasts.So how was it?: non-stop sunshine, wall to wall EV enthusiasts, talks so popular you couldn’t move in the exhibition halls, the food ran out on day 1. It was fantastic! Truly.
