For events, environmental impact carbon emissions, air quality and noise are high on the agenda. Cost too is an important factor when planning power needs for any event.
The challenge is in providing a reliable supply of power, when and where it is needed, with the least environmental impact and at the best cost. No mean feat!
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.
