David Martell, CEO of Chargemaster, the UK’s largest provider of electric vehicle charging infrastructure, was honoured at the Low Carbon Champions Awards at Birmingham’s NEC last night (11 October) as the Outstanding Individual in Promoting Lower Carbon Transport.
Having founded Chargemaster in 2008, David has led the business to its market-leading position, both in providing UK-manufactured charging points, and operating the UK’s largest electric vehicle public charging network, POLAR.
The judges recognised David for his pioneering work in creating the POLAR network, as well as building a business that now has a global reputation and employs over 200 people.
After receiving his award, David said, “I was totally surprised and incredibly chuffed to receive this recognition from the low carbon transport sector. Reducing vehicle emissions by enabling electric motoring is something that I have been passionate about for many years, and that the team at Chargemaster is driving forward with every day. Electric vehicles have a very bright future in the UK and we are very pleased to be playing such a major part.”
David received his award in front of more than 240 guests at the event organised by the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP) to recognise the UK’s leading innovators in low carbon transport. The Champions Awards judging panel was made up of 25 high-profile industry experts from a range of UK organisations with an active role in low carbon road transport.
