GreenPower your event
Your organisation may be using GreenPower for its main operations, but what about your events; be they in-person or online?
Events can be big energy users due to things like lighting, computers, catering, audio visual equipment, and heating and cooling. Increasingly, event planners are working to reduce their events' carbon impact.
Buying GreenPower eliminates the grid electricity components of your event's carbon footprint. Show attendees and social media followers that your organisation is taking proactive measures to reduce its carbon footprint by using fully accredited renewable energy, which produces zero net greenhouse gas emissions. When you buy GreenPower you are also helping drive investment in renewable energy generation in Australia, creating job opportunities and supporting regional communities.
How to GreenPower your event
GreenPowering your event is as easy as one, two, three!
Use our handy Event Energy Usage Calculator
For a typical presentation or seminar-style event with less than 50 people, your result will almost always be under 1MWh, requiring 1 GreenPower Large-scale Generation Certificate (LGC).
For a larger event, click through to the detailed calculator that takes into account the lighting, audio visual systems, air conditioning, heating and catering equipment, to give you an accurate picture of how much energy your event will use.
The calculator lets you save your energy usage estimate as a PDF or other file type - you'll need this in step 2.
You may already be using a GreenPower Provider who can add additional GreenPower to your bill. Simply send them your report card with the amount of GreenPower you need to purchase for your event.
Alternatively, you can search for a GreenPower Provider using our Find a Provider tool.
Enter yourself as an Event user, choose 'any %', and your state.
Send your report card to several GreenPower Providers to get the best price.
Once you know how much energy your event will use, and you've chosen your Provider, simply purchase GreenPower to fully match your calculated amount.
Your GreenPowered event is now eligible to use the GreenPower Event logo for promotional materials and can claim to offset all its electricity use with 100% renewable energy. Apply here to use our logo.
