Large or small, long or short in duration, the objectives are the same. Events use power for everything from communications equipment, visitor amenities, camp sites, food concessions, AV production, broadcast equipment, security and staff facilities. Often dispersed over a wide area, the job of planning and delivering power is daunting.
Event organisers are increasingly aware of their environmental impact and often demonstrating a commitment to this is a condition for a licence to hold the event in the first place. For broadcasters, high quality power with minimum noise is a must. Where possible, the use of renewable energy sources is highly desired. Many events have long build up and beak down periods where power needs are more modest and this is often where the biggest savings and benefits can be enjoyed.
