Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be virtually presented to winners during a live event on Wednesday, August 5. Tickets for the virtual event are now on sale.
More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, and App of the Year, among others. EV Connect was nominated in the Energy Industry Innovation of the Year category.

Through its innovative cloud-based management platform, EV Connect provides unprecedented control and big data insights for and between charge station manufacturers, EV charging site owners, utilities, and EV drivers. EV Connect makes charging networks accessible and flexible by leveraging open standards to avoid locking customers into proprietary systems and walled-gardens.

For utilities like The New York Power Authority, DTE Energy, Avista Utilities, and Southern California Edison, EV Connect supports deployment and optimization of EV charging infrastructure by providing critical insights into EV charging to ensure a smooth transition to electricity as a transportation fuel.
“The EV revolution is at risk of failing if the industry does not build a streamlined, efficient, and effective user experience across the entire EV value chain–EV Connect is doing just that,” said Jordan Ramer, CEO of EV Connect. “We are excited to have won this iconic award and we look forward to supporting utilities and site owners as they scale EV charging infrastructure, and providing EV drivers an outstanding charging experience.”
