The Fully Charged Show was started in 2010, during the very early days of modern electric vehicles.

Now, over 400 episodes later, it has grown from a micro niche show created by one man and some ropey old cameras, into a beautifully produced world leading authority on electric vehicles and renewable energy.

With around 2 million views a month, the show is watched all over the globe.

Our main frustration is that we simply cannot cover all the innovations, new technologies and engineering breakthroughs that are occurring around the world. Our inboxes are jammed with suggestions, many of them wonderful.

Hence the idea of creating a book, hopefully to be repeated as every year sees incredible growth in the renewable energy and automotive industries.

So the The Fully Charged Guide to Electric Vehicles & Clean Energy will be a comprehensive, entertaining, heavily illustrated ‘state of the nation’ snapshot of where we are and where we’re going.

We have gathered together a team of writers from industry, academia and the media to give us the most recent innovations from their specific field of knowledge, and to look forward at what’s to come in the very near future.



What will it look like?

Reaching our target will allow us to make a beautifully designed A4 hardback book, with full colour printing throughout and an estimated 200 images as well as 30,000 words of text. As a supporter, you will get your name printed in the back of the book and receive a copy before its general release into bookstores.

    Fully Charged

    The original reason for Fully Charged was to investigate whether it was achievable 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 reacts to air pollution and climate breakdown; it’s clear to us, that our audience want to live and work in buildings and travel in vehicles that don’t cost the earth.

    More recently we’ve discovered that they’re also interested in an array of adjacent technologies and topics that will enable them to lessen their impact on the planet and Fully Charged is evolving to educate and inspire people to change for the better. Fully Charged exists therefore to educate its viewers that a very high percentage of the energy that the global population demands can, and should, come from ’clean’ sources, most notably solar and wind when allied to energy storage technologies like batteries; although there are many other technologies that can contribute to the transition to a post-combustion era. In short, we would like the world to…STOP BURNING STUFF.

    Thorin Redwin asked:

    what does the Fully Charged Merchandise Bundle look like/include?

    Fully Charged
    Fully Charged replied:

    Hi Thorin, good question and apologies for the lack of detail. We have merchandise in stock; but in strict confidence we are updating logo, adding stock etc. in the coming months so when the book is published and you receive the merch bundle, it will be the latest version and latest items. If you want to hang fire, I understand! I am contactable directly via dan@fullychargedshow.co.uk

    Magdalena Siepka
    Magdalena Siepka asked:

    What are the possible dates (or even a guess at time of year) for the half-day at science park (500.00 level support) and taping of dinner party episode (750.00 level support)? Aiming to do these in 2019 or 2020? Even an aspirational guesstimate would be helpful. : )

    Fully Charged
    Fully Charged replied:

    Thanks Magdalena, a good question! We would intend to do both in 2019. Difficult to be too specific but I would say July or October for the half-day at the Science Park, while it would make sense to the Dinner Party in the lead-up to Xmas (so November or December). I hope that helps and thanks for considering supporting the Fully Charged Almanac!

    Scott Allison asked:

    I am thinking of buying an additional copy as a gift and therefore would like the recipients name in the back of the book. Can this be done, how would I do it? At checkout I see a gift option, but it doesn't seem to prompt me for an alternative name for the recipient.

    Unbound replied:

    Hi Scott, You can change the name once you've completed the pledge. More details how here: http://help.unbound.com/unbound-for-readers/managing-your-subscriptions/changing-the-supporter-name-thats-printed-in-a-book. I hope this helps. Unbound Support
