Robert Llewellyn

Exploring the realities and pitfalls of the accelerating rush toward electric vehicles, renewables and electricity storage. Robert will give his take on the companies and technologies he's witnessed over the past few years and how they might transform the energy economy.

Hopefully realistic in his evaluation, while countering the knee jerk reaction to change he will highlight the positive developments underway.


Biography:  Robert Llewellyn has regularly appeared on British TV since the mid 1980’s. Red Dwarf and Scrapheap Challenge being the best known, but more recently his series Fully Charged has been gaining a large global audience.

Robert first encountered electric cars in California in the early 2000’s when making the American version of Scrapheap Challenge.

As an engineering enthusiast he was intrigued by the developments and started driving an electric car in 2009.

Over the last 8 years he has driven just about every commercially available electric car and travelled the world to witness innovative technology as it starts to get a foothold in our global energy system.

The Fully Charged Show focusses on electric cars, bikes, trucks, busses, boats and soon planes, but the growth in renewables, electricity storage, smart grids and associated systems is rapidly coming to the fore.

Robert’s home is now 70% powered by a mixture of solar and batteries, including charging 2 electric cars.
