Sharing Tricks of the Trade: Top Tips to Save Energy from across Europe
Reporting from the PLASA Show 2014
EE MUSIC exists to create an energy efficient music culture. That means eliminating waste, saving money, and being more creative. It also means helping venue owners, festival promoters, and events organisers to work more efficiently. The best way to do that is to exchange knowledge rather than individually trying to re-invent the wheel.
We’ve been sharing the expertise we already have but also learning a lot on our travels through Europe, meeting festival and events organisers and venue/club managers, and stumbling across some great energy-related ideas and top tips. Here are some things to think about in the next few months:
For more top tips, ideas, and advice, visit the EE MUSIC website at http://ee-music.eu and check out our case studies and guides. To get even more insights into what your peers across Europe are doing, check out the Event Reports on our blog at http://www.ee-music.eu/blog - or join us at an event in your region!
If you haven’t entered your data yet, now is the perfect time to do so. If you’re a club or venue, you’re in the middle of the year, and if you pull together last year’s energy use data you can plan for the rest of the year. If you’re a festival, you’ve probably just left site so it's the best time to gather together information. Entering your data only takes a short time (make sure you have your bills at the ready!) and the EE MUSIC team are on hand if you need any assistance – just email support [ at] juliesbicycle [dot] com .
The EE MUSIC IG Tools are free-to-use carbon calculators designed specifically for festivals, clubs, and venues that use metrics like number of performances, or festival attendance. Using the Tools can help you keep track of how much energy and/or fuel you’re using, help you plan your future spending, and recognize any anomalies over time and compared to average benchmarks.
