Congratulations Nino Di Cara!

Electric Vehicle Society established the “Howard Hutt Award for Excellence in the Advancement of Electric Transportation” as a way to recognise individuals or organisations who have engaged in outstanding efforts towards the advancement of electric transportation in Canada.

We are excited to announce the 2020 recipient of the award as Nino Di Cara, Founder & President of Electric Autonomy Canada. We honour him for his tireless and outstanding work in communicating Canadian electric vehicle related news and information in an accurate, unbiased, and relatable way.

Nino joined EV Society in early 2018, prior to owning his first EV (a situation he quickly resolved). He was passionate about the value and societal benefits of electric vehicles and wanted to do whatever he could to advance the cause. With a strong leadership background in marketing and publishing, Nino actively helped EV Society with its efforts and generously donated his skills and time to numerous committees.

His work outside EV Society has contributed significantly toward Canadian EV adoption and awareness. Launched by Nino in May 2019, Electric Autonomy Canada has quickly become a must- read for federal, provincial and municipal policy makers, OEMs, charging infrastructure providers, fleet managers, utilities, EV society members, and others in the Canadian EV ecosystem. Readership of Electric Autonomy now tops 35,000 users and over 100,000 page views per month.

Nino is increasingly being called upon to moderate industry panels, and interviews with national and local media to speak about EVs and important news of the day. Electric Autonomy Canada hosts regular webinars on important industry topics and has strong followings on LinkedIn and Twitter.

All this is quite an achievement in under two years; EV Society thanks Nino for his efforts and is proud to present the 2020 Howard Hutt award to him this year!
