While we all appreciate the glamour and allure of the film industry, it’s widely recognised that it has traditionally been an energy-intensive sector, contributing to significant carbon emissions. However, there is a growing trend towards more sustainable practices, as is the case with this forward looking film production in London.
This London based film production embarked on a transformative journey to reduce its carbon footprint and explore cleaner energy alternatives. Their primary focus was finding a sustainable solution to reduce their fuel consumption from diesel generators. They partnered up with Skoon, the clean mobile energy platform, and found a suiting solution to hybridise the energy set-up by combining a battery pack with the existing diesel generator at the unit base. All the production had to do was communicate the expected energy needs and Skoon would arrange the rest. From system selection, a premature cost-benefit analysis to determine the potential to the delivery and installation of the system.
The results were impressive. After just one week of implementing Skoon’s selected hybrid battery set-up, the production company achieved significant savings. They conserved 300 liters of diesel, equating to nearly 900 kg of avoided CO2 emissions. This tangible impact highlighted the efficiency of the solution.
With the stored data and the learnings of this trial, further optimisation and even better results can be achieved. With Skoon’s comprehensive data analysis tools, thresholds for operating times of the battery can now be fine tuned, leading to even better fuel and costs savings.
Beyond the environmental benefits, the production team also noticed practical advantages. The battery system reduced noise levels and simplified cabling, enhancing their operational efficiency. Additionally, the installation and operation of the system were seamless and user-friendly.
Encouraged by their success, the film production company and Skoon are now collaborating to identify more opportunities within the film industry to deploy clean energy solutions. They are also exploring the integration of additional renewable energy sources like solar and wind power to further advance their sustainability goals.
This partnership between the film production company and Skoon serves as a remarkable example of businesses working together to reduce their carbon footprint and embrace innovative clean energy solutions. It showcases the potential for positive change when industry leaders prioritise sustainability. Join us in celebrating this remarkable story of sustainability in the film industry, where a commitment to a greener future aligns with lights, camera, and action. Stay tuned for more updates on our journey towards a sustainable world.
