After eight years and more than 300 episodes, Robert Llewellyn’s Fully Charged, a YouTube show dedicated to the future of energy & transport, will be brought to life as a fun-filled exhibition for thousands of enthusiasts. Fully Charged LIVE will launch at the world-famous Silverstone circuit at the heart of the UK’s motorway network on Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th June.
In the last two years, as interest in low-emission vehicles and low-carbon technologies has accelerated, the Fully Charged audience has grown by more than 1,000% with around two million episode views each month.
Fully Charged LIVE, sponsored by Ecotricity, DriveElectric and other partners, promises to bring together all the elements of a cleaner, cheaper future under one roof. Visitors will be treated to an array of first-class features including the UK debut of Tesla’s Tiny House, an Ask The Experts area, every Electric Vehicle available in the UK and an Exhibition of Renewable Energy Technologies, with more attractions to be announced in the run-up to the show.
What’s more visitors will get to hear from leading energy and transport experts in entertaining theatre sessions to be hosted by Fully Charged presenters Robert Llewellyn (Channel 4’s Scrapheap Challenge, BBC’s Red Dwarf), Jonny Smith (Channel 5’s Fifth Gear) and Helen Czerski (BBC’s From Ice to Fire).
There will be at least a dozen live sessions including: ‘Introduction to owning an Electric Vehicle’, ‘Generating your own heat and power at home’ and ‘Global Shift: what does the next decade look like for Energy and Transport?’
Robert Llewellyn, the man behind Fully Charged, had this to say: “We’re ludicrously excited about bringing Fully Charged to a live audience at Silverstone, not least because the shift to the technologies that we’re passionate about has really accelerated in recent months. The Fully Charged team and the show’s steering committee have worked tirelessly to include the ingredients that our audience love in a live format and we’re really looking forward to welcoming you on the 9th & 10th June. We’ve had huge support from the energy and transport sectors, but I’d like to personally thank our headline sponsors Ecotricity, and our key partners Chargemaster, Drive Electric and the Renewable Energy Association, for making Fully Charged LIVE a reality.”

Take an excursion to our events page to discover upcoming electric vehicle events and things to do… some we will be attending as ‘DriveElectric’ and some we’re heading to just for fun. We also post updates on prize draws and competitions we are running on this page (if you’re feeling lucky).
We’ve always found the EV community warm and welcoming so get involved if you can. As well as physical meet ups there are great EV owners groups on Facebook (the BMW i3 UK group on Facebook is particularly useful and chatty!) and there’s lots of activity on twitter too, so either virtually or ‘in real life’ we hope to see you there.
