On the 24 November, Chiara from Julie’s Bicycle was in Dublin to help run an EE MUSIC Workshop for venues and events organisers in Ireland. Our co-organiser and local EE MUSIC Ambassador is Claire Byrne, sustainability manager at Body&Soul and other Irish music festivals and also a Dublin City Councillor for the Green Party.
The event took place in the Parlour at Whelan's in Dublin. The iconic venue has been hosting live music events since 1989 and operates several stages - the main venue (capacity 450), Upstairs (capacity 120), and The Parlour.
Warmed by a cozy fire, representatives from across the music event and energy industries ranging from festival production professionals to CODEMA, Dublin’s Energy Agency, discussed what it would take to improve the way the music events industry in Ireland relates to energy use.
Brian Sweeney from Dublin-based energy consultancy Evolved Energy Solutions gave us a presentation in the context of Ireland:
He also presented a case study of an energy audit undertaken in a club in Dublin. Among the things they found were:
Lastly, he looked at some possible funding mechanisms for energy efficiency in Ireland:
A key piece of advice he offered is that when investing in energy upgrades to always obtain written assurances on any claims of costs and energy savings BEFORE implementing upgrades.
Chiara looked at hotspots for energy use and potential savings in clubs and venues, as covered in the EE MUSIC Handbook. One challenge that was mentioned by many in the room is the relative age of most small to medium venue buildings in Ireland, and the lack of investment and funding for the required upgrades.
In the afternoon, we focused on environmental sustainability at events. Claire Byrne gave a thorough overview of initiatives implemented at Body&Soul festival, including the creation of the “Us&You” brand to engage audiences while also demonstrating the green actions the festival was undertaking itself. Key successes include engagement with the waste contractor, increasing their waste-recycling rate from 7% to over 50% in the space of 3 years. The festival also has a hugely oversubscribed ‘green’ camping area that is so clean it’s possible to walk around barefoot among the tents.
Following this was a session on general energy management at festivals. One key challenge that was brought up was a tendency for incoming productions, especially headline artists, to overspecify the amount of power they want to be provided with – and a tendency for end users to demand sole use of a generator (due to ‘old school’ concerns about power trips), making good system design difficult on site. Any more efficient approaches to energy management on festival sites is therefore as much an issue of challenging old norms as it is of identifying the correct technology and power spec.
Overall, there is a keen interest among the industry in Ireland – but the challenges faced are similar to those in other European countries. The key challenges mentioned by attendees were:
When asked in what ways the events industry in Ireland could better address environmental sustainability, attendees suggested the following:
The practical tools and actions attendees pledged to look at in their own operations included:
When asked who was currently missing from the conversation and whose support was needed, attendees listed:
The EE MUSIC Team hopes that the music event industry and energy professionals in the room will take this discussion forward, using this Workshop as a starting point for further action that might just resolve some of the challenges we stumbled across.
