UK: Powerful Thinking launched its Smart Energy for Festivals and Events guide at the Green Events and Innovations Conference (GEI9) on March 7, which was hosted by A Greener Festival at the ILMC.
The guide provides a wealth of knowledge and inspiration, including 24 fact sheets on specific topics, two resource packs, briefing sheets for staff and stakeholders, over 10 new case studies, and links to resources and energy consultants.
Events are typically able to save between 10% and 50% of their fuel consumption and the guide uses case studies of recent events to illustrate how and where this has been achieved.
The guide is a European Collaboration, written by a group of leading European energy consultants, advisers and festival organisers under the direction of lead author Chris Johnson, Chair of Powerful Thinking and Operations Director of Shambala Festival. Key contributors include: Chiara Badiali (Julie’s Bicycle), Paul Schurink (ZAP Concepts), Sid Rogerson (Entersys), Tim Benson (ZAP Concepts UK), Sjoerd Schouten (Watt-Now), Shaun Pearce (Production Services Association) and Liz Warwick (Lansdowne Warwick).
