Glastonbury is well and truly underway, and the organisers have announced that this year’s festival will run entirely on renewable energy.
The news came earlier in the week as the official account shared the methods via Twitter.
“We’re very pleased to report that all of Glastonbury 2023’s power needs will be met by renewable energy and renewable fuels, eliminating the need to rely on fossil fuels for power across the festival.” Said the festival organisers via the social media platform on Monday 19th.
Alongside this, the festival will see a ban on the sale of single-use plastic drink bottles and disposable vapes, while all crisps will be sold in compostable packaging.
Generators on the site will run on sustainable, renewable, palm-oil free HVO Fuel. It’s made from waste cooking oil, which helps reduce C02e emissions.
A temporary wind turbine installed alongside a solar panel and battery system will produce up to 300kW of energy per day and power the food stalls in Williams Green.
