We will power our stage production almost entirely with renewable, super-low emission energy. We will avoid fossil fuels wherever possible.
We will install solar photovoltaic panels in the build-up to each show, behind the stage, around the stadium and where possible in the outer concourses. The show batteries will start charging as soon as we arrive at the venue.
Our partner Neste will provide us with renewable diesel, an HVO-type (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) biofuel, produced 100% from renewable raw materials, primarily waste and residues such as used cooking oil. Renewable Diesel use can lower generator carbon emissions significantly. Renewable diesel will power large parts of our tour transports by trucks, too, meaning super-low emissions, as much as 75 to 95% reduced emissions, from these parts of our show transportation as well.
In partnership with BMW, we have developed the first ever mobile, rechargeable show battery - made from recyclable BMW i3 batteries - which will power our show with renewable energy wherever we take it. We will have a number of other batteries in use that we can charge from multiple sources including renewable diesel made from waste, such as used cooking oil, solar energy and even kinetic energy from the fans.
We will install kinetic floors in certain locations around the stadium so that the fans’ dancing can be converted into energy and will literally help to power the show. We will install electricity-generating pedal bikes so that fans can actively charge our show batteries.
Whenever it’s available, we will use mains power from 100% renewable sources. (This is why we’re starting the tour in Costa Rica, where 99% of mains power is renewable. Read more)
