Formula E signs multi-year deal with energy solutions provider Aggreko

by Madaline Dunn

Formula E has announced a multi-year deal with energy solutions provider Aggreko to provide its technology to its events globally as an Official Provider.

To power select races, Aggreko will supply six 300kVA batteries to charge all Formula E cars and varying battery sizes to power the overall circuit at race locations.

Each battery can charge four race cars simultaneously, the equivalent of powering 84,000 mobile phones.

These are backed up via Stage V Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) powered generators, which emit 90 per cent less CO2 emissions and reducing emissions, nitrogen, sulphates and overall HVO consumption when compared with diesel.

Selected tracks will also use solar arrays trackside to assist in powering the batteries.

Aggreko’s experts create specialised tailor-made plans for all worldwide race locations to help power all cars, Formula E’s on-site hospitality, the Allianz Fan Village and fan experiences, as well as different energy points around the track such as timing and camera points.

David de Behr, Head of Sales, Aggreko Event Services, commented: “Sustainability is at the heart of all what we do in Aggreko, making it the perfect fit for the world’s most sustainable motorsport series. Aggreko is aiding Formula E’s energy transition journey, supporting its goal to reduce overall emissions by 45% and maintain its position as the world’s most sustainable sport and in line with our passion to deliver temporary clean energy solutions to the events industry.”

Tiziana di Gioia, Chief Revenue Officer, Formula E, added: “Aggreko is a trusted supplier and expert in forward thinking and sustainable temporary energy solutions, so we’re thrilled to have it on board as an Official Provider of the championship. It is vital to us in not just having the correct power to deliver our unique events, but done so in the most sustainable methods possible; something that Aggreko is a true leader and pioneer in.”
