Planners and contracted suppliers can use the criteria below to ascertain if best practice for event energy and equipment is part of operational process and event planning.
There is an environmental / energy policy which details intentions to optimise energy efficiencies in all event deliveries. Don’t have one? Download a template.
To detail how the impact of energy use will be mitigated across the event delivery, a Sustainable Event Energy Plan is created in partnership with key suppliers. Need inspiration? Download a template.
A list of the equipment brought on site is requested / provided and includes energy performance rating using the EPC rating system.
Equipment is turned off when not in use and forms part of delivery remit. This is independently monitored onsite.
The energy usage of equipment is measured across the duration of the event, including build and de-rig.
Individual energy use for the event has been reported (by supplier).
Total event energy usage is reported post-event.
Energy used for the event is carbon balanced (offset).
Data collected on equipment and outcomes from onsite monitoring is reported alongside the energy used and the learnings are shared with clients / suppliers to shape energy improvements and efficiencies for future events.
