We don’t generally attend or exhibit at many trade shows and events, however last year we made an exception for Fully Charged Live (FCL). Fully Charged is a popular YouTube channel about EV’s and clean tech started by Robert Llewellyn, it’s well worth a watch.
Last year was the first ever FCL event focusing on electric vehicles and clean energy tech. @TrystanLea and I enjoyed exhibiting OpenEnergyMonitor, it was fantastic to speak to so many enthusiastic and knowledgable people who ‘get it’ when it comes to the changes required to avoid climate change. It was a very inspirational and motivating event.
This year we’re making the same exception and will be attending and exhibiting again. Please come along and join us! It would be great to meet members from the community. Myself, @TrystanLea, @Gwil and probably @emrys (on some days) will be there. The OpenEnergyMonitor stand will be in stall B12 in Hall 2.
My wife will also be exhibiting our DIY EV Campervan Converison outside in the Silverstone paddock.
This year it sounds like FCL will be significantly larger with every EV motor manufacturer and lots of clean tech companies attending and bookable EV test drives round the Silverstone track! There will also be lots of interesting panel discussions:
