E.ON will also have access to Veloce’s vast esports and gaming audience, allowing both parties to engage and inspire the next generation together.

This partnership will focus on the drive to decarbonize EV transport and expand the EV charging network across Europe, as well as developing larger sources of renewable electricity and promoting greater gender diversity in the worlds of engineering, energy and motorsport.

Activities will include an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Extreme E team as it progresses through the 2022 season, in-depth interviews with Veloce’s racing stars, and projects focusing on the environment and diversity.
