EV Team

We invite you to join the EVUp network

The EVUp electric vehicle charging network was established in early 2020 by two EV enthusiasts passionate about working towards climate change mitigation & adaption.

Russ Shepherd created our partner company, EVolution Australia, in 2015 & has grown an EV community-focused business that is as well regarded for charging products as the expert advice & support given to drivers on a daily basis.

Emma Sutcliffe is a climate activist & sustainable living advocate who is committed to breaking down the common barriers to EV adoption, particularly for women.

EVUp believes in supporting local businesses, skills & jobs, which is why we’ve developed our own software, as well as manufactured our own AC charging unit, the AURIGA, right here in Australia.

We invite you to join the EVUp network by contacting Emma or Russ via email (below) or by completing our contact form.

EVUp. Charge happy.

Russ Shepherd, EVUp Director.

Russ Shepherd unwittingly started our partner company, EVolution Australia, by selling portable chargers and cables for electric cars to help fund his ICE to EV conversion project. The 2001 Audi he stripped now runs 150kms on battery power & the business is growing at a rapid rate in line with the increasing demand for electric vehicle knowledge, advice & products.

A computer engineer & project manager by trade, Russ is passionate about research, innovation & manufacturing in the domestic EV sector, as well as providing local internships & jobs.
