We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to our events customers over the years.

Going forward, we will still continue to strive in our vision for an energy efficient, low carbon and cost effective future for festivals and events, working closely with Powerful Thinking. These events and the incorporation of clean energy exemplify what the industry can achieve with hybrid power and along with the ‘Festival Vision; 2025 Pledge’, together we can take industry-wide action to create a sustainable future!
