Fossil Free Festivals of the Future – Presented by Greener Power Solutions

Speakers: Tijl Couzy (Lab Vlieland), Maarten van ‘t Veld (Mysteryland), Xtina Chu (Solar Punks), Arash Aazami (Unify.Energy)
Moderator: Anna van Nunen (Greener Power Solutions)

How can festivals transform their need for fossil fueled energy into future proof renewable energy? This panel will inspire the industry about the future of energy at festivals, and will dive into three best-practices for renewable energy solutions.

We kick off this program with futurist and energy pioneer Arash Aazami. He will take us to the future and share his vision for mobile renewable energy.

Over the past decade, the renewable energy transition in festival industries across the world has taken off. Maarten van ‘t Veld will share how Mysteryland shifted from fossil to renewables through collaborations with the City Council and a local energy cooperation. Tijl Couzy tells you all about ‘hot swapping’ batteries during a 4-day camping festival; and Xtina Chu will showcase her mini-grid at Burning Man which generated 8 days of renewable energy for one camp.

Who is this program for?

This program is for festival producers, festival sustainability managers and suppliers who facilitate festivals in their energy demand. Please note that you need an ADE Pro orADE Green ticket to join this program. This program is part of ADE Green.
