    Gagan Dhillon - SYNOP

    Joining Robert on the podcast this week is Gagan Dhillon, Co-Founder at Synop.ai, a Fleet EV Charging Management company that is making huge strides in the V2G and Virtual Power Plant sector.
     
    There are close to half a million school buses across America, doing what school buses do, sitting idle in yards for most of the day. Well, Gagan and the Synop team have spotted an opportunity to make them far more useful by electrifying them and utilising the huge batteries as virtual power plants when they aren’t delivering students to school.
     
    With more than 6000 electric buses already in active service, the tech works and it’s making a big impact. In this podcast Gagan takes Robert through how Synop approach the challenge and deliver optimised charging solutions that are cleaner and greener.

    Fully Charged meets Just Have a Think | The Fully Charged Podcast

    Fully Charged meets Just Have a Think | The Fully Charged Podcast

    Joining Robert on the podcast this week is Dave Borlace from the Just Have a Think YouTube channel.
     
    Dave was with us recently at our Everything Electric LONDON expo, and we just had to get him back here on the podcast.
     
    Diving straight into how best we can tackle the climate crisis, along with the pros and cons of small nuclear reactors and off-shore and on-shore wind. We also learn what utter nonsense the WLTP range numbers of EVs are!

    Robert also shares the scary fact that the area of land currently being used for golf courses in the UK, if used for renewables could more than satisfy the whole country’s energy demand, and rightly he asks “Do we want Golf or Energy?!”. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below!
     
    Once these two get started, they really are UNSTOPPABLE! We hope you enjoy this very entertaining and enlightening chat.

    Possibly The Best EV Ever Made with Ricky Roy | The Fully Charged Podcast

    Possibly The Best EV Ever Made with Ricky Roy | The Fully Charged Podcast

    Showcasing our second (digital) fireside chat from our recent Everything Electric LONDON expo, in this week’s podcast episode Robert speaks with Ricky Roy, Fully Charged’s ‘man in America’!
     
    Ricky recently got his hands on the new Cybertruck, (that episode is over on our Fully Charged SHOW channel), and when he’s not driving the latest and greatest EVs, he’s engineering his house into the home of the future!
     
    The pair also discuss the imminent tidal wave of Chinese cars about to hit US shores and what that means, as well as how our respective countries are managing with all the media FUD.
     
    And as a little bonus, we’ve also included Ricky’s podcast with Elliot Richards from last year’s Fully Charged LIVE event in Farnborough for those who missed that, or who would like to listen to it again.

Top electrons

This is honestly one of the best and most informative podcasts on everything electric and renewable. I’m really glad to have found it, as it is one of the main bastions out there championing against the anti-electric agenda here in the UK and pushing out consistent quality content (when others that should aren’t). Robert, Quentin and others are top tier. I don’t want to eulogise, but what you’re doing here guys is great and hope you guys keep it up.

My other two points to consider are:
#1. Maybe do a ‘good news of the week’ section and a ‘bad news of the week’ section. This could highlight the good things that are happening week to week, and vice versa at the end of the episode (maybe 5 mins/ week segment). This would give the listener a well rounded view of where industry was going and where it currently is. Almost a reminder CTA for us the day-to-day listener, that there is good stuff going on but we’re not there yet. You could almost do a ‘positive electrons’ and ‘negative electrons’ section, but I’ll leave that to the production team. :))

#2. While the show caters perhaps for us ‘early adopters’, not that it happens often, but would recommend (as hard it is) to refrain from us vs. them chatter against current ICE owners. As much as I love Robert and Quentin’s rants (and I don’t want them to stop) I can’t help but feel a need to bring others along with us. There will be those on the fence listening and I can’t help but feel they need to be included some more. Then again, I do understand in instances against big oil, poor political decisions etc it shouldn’t and can’t be helped 😉…

Overall 5 ⭐️

Top quality discussions

All the content produced by Fully Charged, Stop Burning Stuff & Everything Electric team is just so good. Discussions about all kinds of clean energy topics, with real experts in their subjects rather than just someone who has an opinion on it.
Keep up the good work 👍

Love everything electric but not happy about food

Why bang on about food when nothing to do with everything electric? Especially trample on meat and push veganism. There is so much green washing about how meat is using so much water use and creating co2 issues. All animals (especially grass eating) use no extra water and methane is short life compared to CO2. If fact the grass takes up CO2 and the animals fertilise the grass. It’s a total circular system. Not like smoking fifthy ships bringing over other green washed products across oceans. Grass fed meat also gives the most vitamins and other essential elements. I got no issues with anyone want to be vegetarian or vegan. But not be pestering the rest of us with one sided green washing that meat is bad.
