Power Logistics set to showcase green credentials at Showman’s Show 2016

Power Logistics’ LED lighting in action at V Style for this year’s V Festival, Chelmsford.
Event power and lighting specialist Power Logistics will be highlighting its green credentials at this year’s Showman’s Show, held at Newbury Showground from 19th – 20th October. Delivering energy efficiencies is at the forefront of everything that Power Logistics does as it continuously seeks new methods to make the events it supports as carbon efficient as possible.

The exhibition stand will be a showcase for the numerous sustainable solutions that Power Logistics offers and senior members of its team will be on-hand to discuss what the company is doing to reduce its impact on the environment.

Products and services that visitors can expect to see on the stand will include: generator sets running on an environmentally friendly, alternative fuel; solar powered fuel bowsers; LED tower lights; an in-house developed combined heating and power system and a selection of the company’s brand new LED lights. In addition, its telemetry equipment will be in operation throughout, allowing festival and event organisers to see for themselves how power usage can be monitored both remotely and onsite to access real-time information about power consumption and fuel usage.

Power Logistics’ experienced team will also be using the opportunity to tell visitors to the Showman’s Show about the methods that they regularly deploy to keep their impact on the environment to a minimum. These include everything from in-house initiatives such as rainwater harvesting for cleaning equipment, installation of sensor lighting, working towards a paperless office and using public transport wherever possible, to the provision of power management solutions that reduce fuels bills and save energy and working closely with supply partners to ensure minimal delivery journeys and maximum vehicle utilisation.

The company has a thriving apprenticeship scheme that has seen six individuals rise through the ranks to become full time employees, several of which will be on the stand. Its green credentials were recently acknowledged at the Bath Chronicle Business Awards it was shortlisted in the ‘Environmental Business of the Year’ category.

Mike Whitehouse, managing director of Power Logistics comments: “In an industry where being able to demonstrate sustainability and environmental responsibility is becoming increasingly important, Power Logistics has strived to remain at the forefront, creating technology and implementing best practice to improve its fuel efficiency and reduce power usage where possible. Exhibiting at this year’s Showman’s Show is an excellent opportunity for us, as a business, to showcase all of the excellent initiatives that we have been offering our clients, over the last few years, to a wider audience.”

“Furthermore, it is important to us that we are taking all the appropriate steps to reduce our carbon footprint rather than simply paying lip service to it in order to win business. We recognise that providing event power is never going to be completely carbon efficient but we want event and festival organisers to know that we are committed to being as sustainable as we possibly can and that we are constantly looking for alternative solutions,” adds Whitehouse.
