What do the biggest music festivals in the country, such as Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds and Download have in common? They all take place in the middle of fields and parks, with hardly any home comforts in sight, unless you opt for VIP camping or stay in a nearby hotel. For festival-goers who have an electric vehicle, they may consider another mode of transport due to the lack of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. This not only decreases ticket sales, but even contributes to harmful carbon emissions.
Events located in remote areas where connecting to the grid is either impossible or expensive may decide to omit a public charging network completely. With our battery storage chargers, you can provide accessibility for EV drivers and encourage others to opt for a net-zero vehicle. You can also attract more custom in eco-conscious people and EV drivers. Events are contributing greatly to the country’s carbon emissions, and it’s time to act…
Events and Climate Change
As mentioned in our previous article, transport is the main culprit when it comes to an event’s carbon emissions. Some music festivals have adopted more sustainable practices, such as the eradication of single-use plastics and pledges for festival-goers to take their rubbish with them when they leave. So far, not much has been done to aid the fight against transport pollution. When people take their cars, they can be safe in the knowledge there will be a petrol station nearby. But what about electric vehicles?
Portable, battery storage electric vehicle charging points don’t need to be connected to the grid and can provide sufficient charge to all models. Festivals and events are the perfect environments for charging an electric car, as they can provide a full charge whilst their owner has fun, completely range-anxiety free. As an EV charging company, we care deeply about our planet and the effects of climate change. To find out more about our services, please visit us here.
EV Charging Solutions
Most EV charging points are connected to the grid, which isn’t practical for annual events. This can deter event organisers from even considering EV charging stations, which is a greatly missed opportunity. By letting potential attendees know that there are portable EV chargers present, they can be safe in the knowledge that their car won’t run out of charge on the way home, as they can fully charge up throughout their stay.
Battery storage chargers are also a much more cost-effective option than connecting to the grid, as there are no installation fees or electricity bills. If you opt for our rentable chargers, you only need to pay for our services. We also provide a concierge service throughout your rental period to ensure all EV charging stations are working optimally.
Nowadays, all businesses and events want to prove that they’re doing their bit for the environment. Single-use plastic and biodegradable waste are great steps forward in helping tackle climate change, but more needs to be done to cut down on transport emissions. Having EV charging points is a great thing to boast about; not many festivals have discovered the benefits of battery storage chargers, despite the many advantages.
Here at Elite Vehicle Charging, we can provide portable EV charging stations to help events, businesses and destinations alike support EV drivers and create a greener future.
