Hybrid

HYBRID GENERATOR INITIATIVE

Introducing our latest innovation in sustainable energy for the film and high-end television industry: our hybrid generators powered solely by HVO fuel and battery storage systems.

To explain what our setup entails Hybrid generators combine traditional fuel-based generators with high-capacity batteries. This integration ensures continuous power supply while reducing reliance on fossil fuels, thereby mitigating environmental impact.

This adoption of hybrid generators offers a multitude of benefits including:

  • Environmental Sustainability: by a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and reliance on finite fossil fuels.

  • Cost Efficiency: Lower operational costs through optimized energy usage and reduced fuel consumption.

Essentially, from data received from past productions we are typically able to power a unit base for two thirds of a day from the batteries alone, the generator will only run when the battery has depleted to a state of charge that we stipulate, for this period of charging the generator will be powering the base as well as recharging the battery. The total capacity of a system needs to be able to cope with the anticipated peak load at base - traditionally, this has meant that diesel generators were spec'd to cope with this peak but for the rest of the day they are basically being used under-capacity which has meant inefficient fuel consumption - by adding the battery, you can basically eradicate that 'redundant' fuel burn and store in the battery to discharge without the generator for subsequent power demand. As previously stated this typically leads to a 66% reduction in generator runtime as well as fuel and CO2 savings.
 
What sets our hybrid generators apart is not just their versatility and reliability. It's also the advanced monitoring and control features that allow us to optimize power usage, track savings, and remotely control operations from anywhere in the world.
 
With real-time monitoring, as can be seen on screen we can ensure maximum efficiency and cost savings while minimizing our environmental impact. It's not just about powering productions—it's about doing so responsibly and sustainably.
 
To give a more detailed explanation our hybrid generator initiative is equipped with cutting-edge monitoring and control features, enabling real-time oversight and optimization of power generation. Key functionalities include:

  • Operation Monitoring: Constant monitoring of generator performance and renewable energy production.

  • Power Usage Tracking: Detailed tracking of energy consumption patterns to identify optimization opportunities.

  • Savings Analysis: Calculating cost savings achieved through reduced fuel consumption and increased reliance on renewables.

  • Remote Control: Full remote-control capability, allowing adjustments to generator settings and operational parameters from anywhere in the world.

Furthermore, incorporating the hybrid generator vehicle into our towing configurations, that remain with your unit base we are able to further reduce the bringing in swing vehicles to move your base, greatly reducing empty HGV miles which are one of the biggest contributing factors of CO2 emissions in production. 

In conclusion, working alongside sustainability teams and providing them access to the real-time monitoring and data for each production not only are we reducing carbon emissions for that single production but by analysing the data we are gaining valuable insights into how to improve efficiency going forward. Therefore, our hybrid generator initiative represents a significant step towards sustainable energy usage and environmental stewardship for productions.

Fleet Compliance

As the UK and Europe's only importer of Type 02 and Type 03 approved Canadian and American trailers our clients are safe in the knowledge that all our trailers are VCA and/or RDW approved and legal for use on UK/European roads.

VCA/RDW Type Approvals

Type Approval is an assessment to ensure that all our trailers meet specific legal requirements and abide by laws and regulations. It is to examine the safety, security and environmental impact of a trailer for it to then become legal to drive on the roads.

Maintenance

With an extensive maintenance schedule in place for all our vehicles and trailers, On-Set's fleet is always above the standards required by road safety laws. 

Rosa Romero, Amaranth Films

I always choose On-Set. They have an excellent fleet, but most importantly, reliable and friendly personnel that work with production to offer practical and affordable solutions. That is what sets them apart from any other facilities company.

Emma Mallet, UPM

On-Set have been my go-to supplier for facilities for many years. The kit is of the highest quality from honeywagons to star trailers and everything in between. 

Dulcie

The boys were really fantastic – nothing was too much trouble, they were consistently helpful, good humoured and organised, plus the truck was great. It was all really appreciated by everyone in the Costume Department.
