Entertainment

Large numbers of people gather for entertainment, relaxation, work, and learning at venues like resorts and casinos, stadiums, arenas, and universities, creating energy-intensive facilities. Each year, the entertainment industry alone spends about $4.6 billion on energy to operate event-hosting facilities1. Today, campuses of all kinds are rethinking their energy solutions to lower emissions and create more sustainable experiences.

The Opportunity

Large facilities that are focused on creating positive visitor experiences must also focus on reduced greenhouse gas emissions. From industry leaders and government officials to venue visitors themselves, key stakeholders demand meaningful climate action from campuses looking to stay modern and competitive.

The Challenge

Energy-intensive entertainment facilities experience high electrical demand and thermal loads that intensify as occupancy increases. They must support these energy needs while becoming more reliable and resilient, decarbonizing rapidly, and expanding their energy capacity — without waiting for the grid to catch up.

The energy transformation of large entertainment campuses is important in considering the following:

by 2050
Most of the major entertainment and hospitality organizations have made commitments to go carbon-neutral by 2050 or earlier 1
66
%
GHG reduction by 2030
The hospitality industry must reduce its greenhouse gas emissions per room per year by 66% by 2030, and 90% by 2050 to avoid the worst impacts of climate change 2
53
