How are Events Contributing to Climate Change?

As we get back to normal and back to attending the events we’ve so dearly missed, there’s just one little niggling thought that we all must take into consideration; climate change. The effects are becoming more evident by the day, and we need to take drastic action to stop it in its tracks. Big corporations and events need to consider what they can do to help the planet, and it all starts with providing for EV drivers. Our EV experts are on hand to help you make the changes you need to make.

By providing electric vehicle (EV) chargers to events, both on and off the grid, we can help attract more eco-conscious visitors. From sporting events to music festivals, all can benefit for deploying car charging points in order to lower their carbon footprint. Here at Elite Vehicle Charging, we can deploy battery storage chargers to off-grid locations where connecting to the grid is either impossible or expensive. If you’re looking for electric charging point installation for your event, consider portable rented chargers instead.

Transportation is the Biggest Culprit

Many people and event organisers think that the biggest cause of their carbon footprint is the waste that gets left behind by festival goers. Therefore, they tend to focus on reusable cutlery, recycling facilities and less plastic. You’d be forgiven for thinking this was enough, but did you know that transportation is the biggest cause of carbon emissions at events. People travelling to and from events contribute to 73% of the event’s carbon emissions, which should give organisers food for thought.

Not only are visitors pumping all that petrol into the air, but EV drivers are also deterred from visiting, as there’s nowhere to charge their cars. Off-grid festivals may be forgiven for not considering EV charger installation, but battery storage options are available that don’t need to be connected to the grid.

Common Misconceptions

In order to make a big difference to help the climate, there’s nothing wrong with starting small. This applies to our own individual feats, but as a business owner or event organisers, there are plenty of eco-friendly alternatives to damaging processes. It’s all good and well encouraging eventgoers to take public transport, but when more of us are opting for electric vehicles, these people need to be accommodated for.

As previously mentioned, most people believe that the waste and food supplies contribute greatly to the carbon emissions of an event. Therefore, efforts are placed in the wrong areas, as transport is a great factor. Electric vehicle charge points are hard to come by, especially in off grid locations. If you opt for rented battery storage chargers, they can be deployed for your event, and removed once it finishes, without having to connect to the grid which can be incredibly expensive.
