Story By: JUSTIN WILLIAMS / AGGREKO – HOUSTON, TX – Aggreko, a global leader in innovative energy solutions, will provide energy storage and advanced generators for the upcoming 2024 Hankook Portland E-Prix. The energy provider recently announced a multi-year partnership with Formula E – the world’s first net zero carbon sport – to help the series achieve its emissions reduction target of 45% across Scopes 1, 2, and 3 by 2030. The Hankook Portland E-Prix, held June 29-30, will be the first North American event Aggreko supports under this partnership.

To maintain a reliable energy source for the two-day event, Aggreko will install its Tier 4F generators throughout the event site. Aggreko’s solutions will power guest services for attendees and support the overall energy needs of the event.

“We’re honored to be partnering with Formula E as its global energy provider,” said Stephen Saal the North America Sales and Marketing Vice President at Aggreko. “As the world’s foremost racing event powered by clean energy, Formula E stands as a great example of what zero carbon energy can achieve for spectator events. We’re honored that the organization has selected Aggreko to ensure the whole event runs as cleanly and reliably as the cars themselves.”

“Each Formula E race requires different energy demands, especially with a vast majority of its calendar being street tracks,” said Start Russell, Senior Electrical Systems Engineer, Formula E. “We needed a reliable, sustainable, and integrated solution that could handle and adapt to the energy demands of our large-scale operations. Aggreko’s past support of events that require always-on energy makes the company an ideal fit for designing and deploying a custom solution for the Hankook Portland E-Prix.”
