The Clean Mobile Power Initiative

The entertainment industry needs zero-emissions power for film and tv productions.

We are coming together to accelerate and deploy clean, reliable mobile power solutions to develop alternatives to diesel generators at scale this decade.

Our Mission

The Clean Mobile Power Initiative aims to identify and deliver cost-competitive, zero-emissions mobile power at scale for the entertainment industry.

The Problem

The entertainment industry currently relies on diesel generators, accounting for roughly 700,000 tons of CO2e emissions per year globally. To reduce emissions and deliver on 2030 climate commitments, we need to find, test, and scale new clean, reliable, and mobile power generating technologies. There are a variety of challenges currently inhibiting cleaner technologies, such as higher upfront costs, lack of clean mobile power solutions at scale, limited education and training for safe and effective uptake, and complex stakeholder relations and procurement practices across the industry.

Our Solution

The Clean Mobile Power Initiative aims to increase the availability of clean alternatives to diesel generators used in the entertainment industry by unifying demand and accelerating supply for mobile batteries, hydrogen power units, and hybrid systems.
