In conversation with the past, present, and future movers and shakers of the electric vehicle eco-system. Upstream in mining and mineral processing and downstream in batteries and charging infrastructures - and all points in between! I will draw on friendships and experiences from 30 plus years in the auto industry - with 15 years of that embedded within the nascent EV industry. Failure and success are all part of my story...and that of many people I know. YOU will hear about it all.

    Emily Hersh - CEO Luna Lithium

    Believe me when I tell you Emily is all over Lithium...

    Specifically and critically in regard to geology - as she has google like knowledge and experience of where the stuff might be - and where it is! 

    In the thick of it all for many years - down Argentina way - but now based In Nevada..and in the thick of it there as CEO of Luna Lithium. 

    A smart cookie without a doubt  so you'll learn a bunch of stuff for sure!

    ...as far as I was concerned our 60 minute conversation was over far too soon!

    Charlotte Smith - EV Thank You Campaigner

    So I asked Charlotte how it all began...

    ..."I was in Year 5 aged 10 and I had to do a science paper on changes...on the change from ICE to Electric"  This isn't a conversation with your average  15 year old - but then again it is! 

    An inspiring individual busy building an impressive reputation. 

    Please find below Charlotte’s fund raising options:
    Patreon patreon.com/evthankyou (monthly option)

    Fiona Howarth - CEO Octopus Electric Vehicles

    Fiona Howarth - CEO Octopus Electric Vehicles

    So what are you going to discover if you invest 52 minutes of your life into listening to this!

    A scoot through Fiona's career - which started at Dyson btw!
    ...and yes I did ask her about the now-you-see-it-now-you-don't Dyson Electric Car

    You'll hear us discuss the rapidly growing demand for EV's and some of the challenge and opportunity in and around that growth - inevitably a UK perspective from Fiona for now.

    Part of The Octopus Group (www.octopusgroup.com) - as well as the EV market, Fiona tells us about the innovation in and around charging and energy management...and I'm inadvertently 'outted' as an electric vehicle charging ignoramus. Best fess up when there's no place to hide.

    You'll hear how EV's Top Dog Tesla have been faring in the face of growing competition, and how Fiona reckons they're dodging the supply chain bullets that everyone else has been troubled by of late.       

    The nexus of renewables and electric vehicles - that's Fiona's 'North Star' and I'm certain you'll love her passion in journeying in that direction!

    EPIC CHALLENGES "Not because they are easy - but because they are hard"...

    EPIC CHALLENGES "Not because they are easy - but because they are hard"...

    Mr Andrew Daga is now delivering on the HUGE challenge of charging up the rEVolution...

    He's a BIG fan of a challenge - reminiscent of putting a man on the moon you might say. Or perhaps scoping out how human habitation might happen one day on the Moon or Mars - Andy's worked on that...subterranean bases in the lava tubes that are ready and waiting for such an adventure.

    We talk about the man and his mission today. A mission to charge up electric vehicles - buses, taxis. trucks and vans - safely, automatically, at high power, and efficiently. 

    Andy and his team might just be about to turn the whole business of charging  on its head - as just like we've become accustomed to cordless phones - cordlessly charged electric vehicles are coming too!

    Motorsport In The Electric Age - In Conversation with Mercedes F1 and others...

    As we seemingly accelerate towards a world without the combustion engine - where does that leave motorsport? In particular, in and around the pinnacle of tech and performance that is Formula One. I compare and contrast F1 and Formula E with those truly in the know.

    My opening question is to Hywel Thomas  -
    Managing Director, Mercedes AMG HPP
    'It's 2031 - can I still go and watch a Formula 1 race - and will Lewis Hamilton still be racing?

    We then hear from:-
    Mark Preston - Team Principal, Techeetah Formula E Racing Team
    Pierre Godof - Chief Engineer, Formula E Powertrain Mercedes Benz HPP
    Ian James - Team Principal, Mercedes EQ Formula E Team
    Geoffrey Willis Willis - Director of Commercial Engineering, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team
    Paddy Lowe - Co-Founder & Director, Zero Petroleum
