4. Greener Power Solutions
Greener was founded in January 2018 to make an impact on the CO2 footprint of on- and off-grid energy markets, using mobile batteries and smart energy planning.
“The idea of bringing mobile battery systems to events emerged in 2014 after a backstage visit to one of the biggest festivals in The Netherlands. We were shocked to discover how little thought had gone into accurately and efficiently planning the power supply of equipment such as lights, audio and food trucks.
And as we looked further, we saw the same lack of planning for energy efficiency in other areas like construction sites and grid maintenance. Instead, all we could see was unnecessarily massive equipment running at very low-efficiency rates. This had to be changed because Greener is always better!”
