NXTGENbps Partners with Sustainable Film to Promote Greener Practices in Film and TV 

NXTGENbps, a pioneer in battery power solutions and a champion of sustainable energy, announces a new partnership with Sustainable Film, a leading consultancy in film and TV production sustainability. This collaboration marks a significant step towards driving the entertainment industry towards greener practices and reducing its environmental footprint.

Sustainable Film has acquired two NXTGENbps Owl Energy Track Pro Monitoring Boxes which will be integral to Sustainable Film’s consultancy services, providing detailed insights into energy usage on sets and helping production teams transition to sustainable energy solutions. 

The NXTGENbps Owl allows users to track power consumption from any source and obtain a true and accurate report of usage. It features customisable dashboards connected through the cloud, enabling precise visualisation of energy metrics. The Owl’s capabilities include live tracking of the asset, live visualisation of energy use with full remote access to this data via the app. Reporting is fully exportable and configurable with graphics in any format.  This makes the Owl perfectly suited for the demanding environments of film and TV production, where understanding, managing and reporting power consumption is crucial for sustainability efforts. 

Designed for ease of use on set, the Owl can be integrated into existing power setups, allowing production teams to monitor consumption at individual sockets or as a total. This granular level of monitoring helps identify specific areas where energy savings can be made, fostering more efficient and eco-friendly production practices. 

“We are excited about the synergy between NXTGENbps and Sustainable Film as we share a common goal of reducing the environmental impact of industry practices,” said Lesley Marr, director of sustainability and business development at NXTGENbps. “Through this partnership, we aim to educate production teams and provide the tools to make informed decisions about their energy use and embrace sustainable alternatives.”
