For most events that take place, organisers are beginning to look towards more sustainable alternatives for practices that often produce carbon emissions. One important factor they are looking towards is the provision of electric vehicle (EV) charging points in order to accommodate EV drivers. Charging for events usually comes in the form of grid chargers that are connected to the charging infrastructure, but this isn’t practical for events that are held annually. Therefore, portable EV chargers could be the perfect solution, to help event organisers that are omitting vehicle charging entirely.
Here at Elite Vehicle Charging, we can deploy our state-of-the-art EV charging stations in the UK, using battery storage technology to provide charge where connecting to the grid is either impractical or impossible. Our portable chargers are also perfect if you don’t want to cause any disruption, as our chargers don’t need to be installed. If you’re planning to organise an annual event, you might want to consider EV charging.
More often than not, annual music festivals are held in fields in the middle of nowhere. Connecting to the grid is almost impossible, and the thought can make EV drivers run for the hills. They may often have to find alternative travel arrangements, or they may miss out altogether. Those that do go will be on the lookout for rapid chargers on their journey, which are located at service stations, and may increase their journey time even more. By providing portable EV charging stations in festival car parks, you can encourage these drivers to pay you a visit, providing accommodations they will appreciate.
Enabling drivers to charge their electric cars at your event rather than relying on charging at home can help boost your sustainability reputation, and encourage more people to visit. The journey to and from certain music festivals can be long for some people, especially if they have an electric car. Therefore, by deploying EV chargers, you can decrease their range anxiety and help them have the best time possible at your event.
There are various sporting events and finals that take place in the UK; the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and even Wimbledon each welcome guests from across the country. Some may opt to travel by public transport to the event, but others prefer to drive, and EV drivers may find that they have once again been left out in the cold. Wembley stadium has just 10 electric car charging points in their Red car park, which simply isn’t enough if we’re planning to get as many people into EVs in the future. Installing grid chargers can be disruptive; charging for events such as these can come in the form of portable chargers, which can be deployed and taken away with ease.
Our portable EV chargers here at Elite Vehicle Charging can be deployed at various events, meeting the needs of guests and organisers alike. From sports games and festivals to car shows and even drive-in cinemas, we’re here to help. To find out more about our event charging services, please visit us here.
Vehicle Charging at Weddings?
This may not be an annual event, but it’s an important one, nonetheless. Weddings are now held in various locations, from woodland areas to the beautiful Lake District. As your guests make the journey to your big day, you may know some people who drive electric vehicles. If your wedding is taking place in a location quite far away from your home, people may have to stay at your venue for a couple of days, and EV drivers will need somewhere to charge in order to feel comfortable. Your venue could be lacking chargers if it’s in an off-grid location, which is where our reliable battery storage chargers come in.
We can deploy our portable EV chargers to your wedding and take them away at the end, providing a concierge service throughout your rental period. We’re dedicated to making all events as sustainable as possible, paving the way to a carbon-neutral future.
