Our award winners
The first '#GREENthankyou' wallbox in July 2022 went to someone who had already completed his personal energy transition – from being a racing driver with petrol in his blood to a passionate multiplier of eMobility. Moderator, author and journalist Christian Clerici, who has been promoting electric mobility in German-speaking countries for years and, together with the company vibe, is making it accessible to the general public. In addition to his work at vibe, Christian Clerici is also committed to the breakthrough of eMobility in conjunction with Austrian tourism. With the series GTE – Gran Turismo Electric, he visits all nine Austrian federal states and puts pioneers in front of the camera there himself. As a hobby, investments are also made in the electrification of vintage cars. The current project here is the #ninefourteenelectric, which serves as a projection surface for co-creating companies, including KEBA, and shows the potential that eMobility brings to different industries.
Automobili Estrema CEO Gianfranco Pizzuto was awarded the '#GREENthankyou' wallbox in August 2022. He has been campaigning for electric mobility since 2007. He was an investor in Fisker Automotive, where he played a key role in shaping the history of the Fisker Karma hybrid sports car. In 2018 he was commissioned by Jaguar as Brand Ambassador for Italy for the launch of the Jaguar I-PACE. Today, Pizzuto is an internationally sought-after keynote speaker, columnist and eMobility influencer. But that's not all: with his company Automobili Estrema he is planning the launch of the Hypercar Fulminea in 2023 – a fully electric super sports car with over 2,000 hp and innovative battery technology that is otherwise only found in Formula e.
A place for cooperation around decarbonisation and thus the energy transition, where leading players and innovative start-ups come together with institutions and other key stakeholders to shape the future together. And that in the middle of a European capital. Many people dream of such projects. He implemented it: Reinhard Müller, architect and entrepreneur, is the brains behind the unique EUREF Campus project in Berlin. In September 2022 we visited Mr. Müller and his team on campus to get an idea for ourselves. At the same time, we also fixed our participation in the next EUREF project in Düsseldorf, where from 2024 like-minded companies will find a new place to create.
In January 2023 the successful series #GREENthankyou was continued and awarded to a true driver and enabler of eMobility - Sebastian Henßler. By collecting available news in the field of electric Mobility, Sebastian became a real expert. In June 2016 he took over Elektroauto-News.net, from that point on he has been publishing news and background reports on electric mobility ever since. Elektroauto-News.net is reaching a broad audience who is interested in new means of personal mobility and is therefore contributing to transfer relevant knowledge on “green means of transport”. What made Sebastian Henßler eligible for the KEBA #GREENthankyou award were not only his initiatives to “educate the public” but also his forward thinking and connecting mindset.
