The Clean Mobile Power Initiative aims to identify and deliver cost-competitive, zero-emissions mobile power at scale for the entertainment industry.
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.
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.
There are three main pillars:
- Demand Signaling:
- Demonstrate growing unmet demand for clean mobile power solutions from major studios in the entertainment industry. Secure commitments from major production vendors to make these clean technologies available in all major markets.
- Training & Education:
- Publish insights to inform the transition to clean mobile power technologies by 2030. Create technology guides and training materials to accelerate the operational integration of these new technologies, specifically for the production industry.
- Accelerate Supply:
- Establish a technology accelerator for clean mobile power solutions for the entertainment industry, including bespoke pilot opportunities on productions with member studios.
