Fully Charged, the world’s largest electric vehicle and clean energy channel, has released a clean energy and transportation manifesto today, 26th October. Supported by businesses from across the energy and transport sectors, it challenges global governments to quit the chat and act today.
From electrifying almost every form of ground transportation, to accelerating the switch to renewable energy generation, the Fully Charged team points out that, in every area, proven solutions exist today. The call to world leaders is fronted by the channel’s founder – presenter and actor Robert Llewellyn – and are reinforced by CEOs of some of the foremost providers of renewables, electric vehicles, and clean energy.
“I’m terrified of COP26 being a platform for posturing, posing and pontificating. We need action from leaders across the world today to curb the impact we’re having on our planet,” said Robert Llewellyn, Fully Charged joint CEO.
“The crazy reality is, we already have all of the answers! Today, there are electric vehicles that are more capable than traditional cars; means of renewable energy generation that could easily fuel our lifestyles; and viable heating technologies that eradicate the need for gas. Our message to world leaders is simple – Stop Burning Stuff and Electrify Everything – TODAY!”
The Fully Charged YouTube Channel and the brand’s global live events focus on the technologies that already exist to help consumers, businesses and governments think differently about mobility, energy generation and domestic use of clean energy. Ahead of COP26, Fully Charged is driving home the immediacy of the climate crisis, plus the urgency to switch to existing solutions.
“As a global community, we’re not doing enough to turn the tide on the use of combustion to fuel our lifestyles, heat our homes, and to transport us wherever we go,” said Dan Caesar, Fully Charged joint CEO.
“Often, people don’t think they’re burning stuff when they boil the kettle or switch on their heating. So, we’re making it really clear to governments and consumers that we need to Stop Burning Stuff now as we shift to Electrify Everything.”
The collective voice, expressed in a special edition of the Fully Charged Show (live from 08:00BST on 26 October) makes the point that governments around the world are not acting with sufficient urgency and are often wasting time on the wrong technologies. The eyes of the world are on COP26 as a once in a generation opportunity to affect change.
