What’s it all about?
At last. With caution and compliance being followed, live events are back. I expect very many of the Leaders in Cleantech audience are familiar with the all things clean mobility and energy Youtube Channel Fully Charged. As well as having over 800,000 subscribers and 2 million monthly views, the Fully Charged team have also been running fantastic events, in the UK and Austin, Texas. Then Covid interrupted that flow. Now they’re back, starting in the UK in September 2021. I speak to Fully Charged Founder and host Robert Llewelyn (TV actor/presenter and Red Dwarf cult hero) and my good friend Dan Ceasar (CEO and now also a presenter) to look forward to what we can expect at this event, and other international events to follow.

Robert Llewellyn is a British actor, presenter and writer, famous for his thirty-year stretch as the rubber-masked mechanoid Kryten in the much-loved science fiction comedy, ‘Red Dwarf’. With his interest in engineering, Robert then turned his hand to presenting the long-running TV gameshow, ‘Scrapheap Challenge’ and also ‘How Do They Do It?’ and ‘Carpool’.
In 2010, after being blown away by early Electric Cars, Robert launched Fully Charged, a YouTube channel focussing on the future of electric vehicles, of all shapes and sizes, and clean energy. Fully Charged has exceeded 55 million views around the world and Robert was recently acknowledged as ‘Tech Legend’ at the T3 Awards.

About Fully Charged:
The origins of Fully Charged lay in the question, ‘is it possible for humans to no longer need to burn things to live, to work and to travel?’ An unachievable destination perhaps, but an important direction of travel as the world responds to air pollution and climate breakdown. Our recent Fully Charged survey shows that our audience want to live and work in buildings, and travel in vehicles that don’t cost the earth.
Fully Charged exists therefore to educate, encourage and explain to its viewers that a very high percentage of the energy that the global population demands can and should, come from ‘clean’ sources, like solar, wind and energy storage. In short, we would like the world to…
STOP BURNING STUFF
It is a massive task and a massive topic with no shortage of stories to tell, in what is an unprecedentedly fast-paced technological revolution.
