Cutting 50%-60% of Primavera Sound Festival’s carbon emission

In today’s world, the push for clean energy solutions is stronger than ever before. However, for many power rental companies, transitioning to a clean energy fleet can be challenging. It is capital intensive and as a rental company you need to find the perfect system that matches your fleet.

To illustrate this, we’ll dive into a rehire booking with one of our customers, the Spanish power rental company Morillo Energy that helped the famous Spanish festival Primavera Sounds cut carbon emissions. Skoon has been facilitating smooth rehiring bookings for many customers like Morillo already, removing both financial and technical complexity for all parties involved in the rehire.

It’s not all that straightforward, so let’s find out the main pain points for power rental companies going clean.

Clean energy is capital intensive

Clean energy is the future, and companies are increasingly recognizing the importance of adopting sustainable practices. However, the transition can be financially daunting for many businesses.

Investing in an entire clean energy fleet requires significant capital, and not all companies can afford to make this leap at once – certainly not if it’s hard to identify customers to rent your product throughout the whole year. This has been a major roadblock for those eager to reduce their carbon footprint but lacking the resources to do so.

Finding the right clean energy match is challenging

Companies need to ensure that the clean energy systems they invest in will work effectively with their customer base. Every region and customer demographic has unique requirements, and companies must tailor their solutions accordingly.

Additionally, they need to consider the technical feasibility of clean energy systems within their country’s infrastructure and regulations. When looking for the right match, small details are easily overlooked if there’s no real world experience deploying the systems.

You have the service, just not the product

In the pursuit of sustainability, companies often find themselves in a challenging situation where they have to reject clean energy requests due to the absence of clean energy products. This can be disheartening for both the company and their customers, as they miss out on the environmental benefits and potential cost savings.

Additionally, not being able to deliver excellent service to your customers may mean missing out on future jobs. If only there were a way to have clean energy products available, always.

Enter Rehiring with Skoon – The Game Changer for Clean Energy Solutions

Rehiring offers a solution to the challenges faced by rental companies on their clean energy journey. Instead of purchasing clean energy products outright, companies can take a first step by rehiring these products from large and capital heavy providers.

This practice allows businesses to rent out cutting-edge clean energy technologies without a hefty upfront investment and risk of investing in the wrong products.

Multiple suppliers in one single booking

Rehiring through Skoon is the optimal choice for suppliers seeking diverse systems. Consolidating all green energy options in one platform, Skoon streamlines bookings, eliminating the complexity of managing multiple supplier relations and payment terms.

With Skoon’s rental management software suppliers gain invaluable data insights into all systems, enabling informed decisions and driving efficient clean energy utilization.

This also allows consistent reporting to your end customer, as Skoon’s software consolidates all data flows and combines them into one customer-friendly report.

Morillo’s Success Story with Skoon

An excellent example of the power of rehiring can be seen through Skoon’s partnership with Morillo Energy in Spain. This forward-thinking company adopted the rehiring model and successfully hired a variety of clean energy products from multiple different suppliers. This was all consolidated into one booking, managed in one place.

These products are being deployed to multiple projects throughout the summer months, the demand peak for clean energy in Spain due the high frequency of events. The systems were, amongst others, used to power the prestigious Primavera Sound Festival, Spain’s largest music festival that takes place in two cities. By hybridizing the generators to power the stages, Morillo Energy significantly reduced fuel consumption, by 50-60%, contributing to a greener and more sustainable event.
