Company of the Year

This award will go to the company that is regarded as being the most influential on the industry in recent years. As is the case with the Time Magazine “Person of the Year” this is not a popularity contest, but recognition of affect on the industry — good or bad.

This award will go to an individual or company that leads in innovative thinking. This could be business model, technical or design innovation.

Corporate Citizen of the Year

This will go to a company that demonstrates responsible business practices, treats their staff and customers with dignity and care and supports the industry with a “we all win together” attitude and practice.

Cross Cultural Leader of the Year

This will go to an individual or a company that demonstrates effective leadership in successful cross cultural problem solving or success creation.

Leaders and Founders Medals

Several awards to be given to individuals who have played important roles in the creation and expansion of the light electric vehicle industry. This may include business, academic or government leaders. Founders awards limited to those whose contributions occurred before 2000.

Bright Light Medal
