Fully Charged Live Energy and Electric Vehicle Show in Vancouver

Fully Charged Live

Fully Charged Live is a home energy and electric vehicle show with guest speakers, exhibitors and fun activities. The event comes to Vancouver in 2023.


Vancouver’s Fully Charged Live Show in 2023

The Fully Charged Show is the “World’s No. 1 Home Energy & Electric Vehicle Show” hosted on YouTube. With about 1 million subscribers, the show has become very popular over the years and has amassed fans from all around the world.

Fully Charged Live is a “Festival of Electrification”. The in-person event features the hosts of the Fully Charged Show and so much more. It’s a content-heavy event with nearly 50 live talks and sessions to enjoy. Topics covered include electric vehicle tips, energy efficiency and heat pumps.

The live show is also a wonderful chance to get a closer look at a wide range of electric vehicles. Guests can test drive new cars and check out some that aren’t even available in Canada yet. There are also e-bikes and micro-mobility tracks to ride on. The exhibition offers activities for all ages as well as lots of learning opportunities. If you’re interested in electric vehicles or clean energy, this is an event you won’t want to miss!

In 2023 the touring exhibition visits Australia and the United Kingdom in the spring. It then makes its Vancouver debut on the second weekend of September.



Did you know that VancouversBestPlaces.com is a carbon-neutral website? Our entire organization is carbon neutral. We’re actually officially “carbon positive”, which means we more than offset our carbon footprint. There aren’t many organizations out there that can say that! We get our Gold Standard offsets through Ostrom Climate, which is the same organization that helps organizations like Vancity Credit Union.

Vancouver’s Best Places takes the environment seriously. We aren’t perfect, but we do try hard. We use green electricity and natural gas through Bullfrog Power. Recycling is also something we take seriously, and our work vehicle is a plug-in hybrid. You might have seen it on the road!
