Towards Net Zero
Battery stores can be used independently or combined with a diesel generator as part of a green power solution. We have 5kW (5.6kWh) stores through to 20kW (from 15kWh to 100kWh) stores and can partner with a battery store manufacturer to offer larger units on specialist projects.
Not sure what battery store size is optimal for your project? We can supply smart distro that remotely tracks your energy demand over a defined period and then advise on battery store integration to reduce fuel consumption, CO2 emissions (and eliminate noise!) during periods of low energy demand.
If you want a 'plug in and play' sustainable power source then a hybrid generator may be the answer. These generators come with a fully integrated battery store that kicks in when energy demand is sufficiently low. Reduced engine run hours means reduced CO2 and reduced air pollution. You also get silent running power when the battery kicks in.
Battery Store Tower Lights
Battery Store Tower Lights
Our Battery Store tower lights are zero emission and run for up to 72 hours on a full charge. Charged at our depots on a 100% renewable electricity tariff, they are the lighting product of choice for a low carbon shoot. We're talking no CO2 emissions and no nasty local air pollutants (no NOx, fine particulates or CO emissions). All this and silent running too.
If required, the lights can be charged off your unit base generator, which - if already running - means negligible additional CO2 emissions. 8 hours is sufficient time to fully recharge the light's battery.
Hybrid Tower Lights

Not quite ready to go full-on battery-powered? Why not try one of our hybrid tower lights. These towers combine a small 3.5kVA generator with a lithium battery store that has been perfectly sized for fuel efficient charging. The lamps are powered from the battery and when the store runs low the small engine kicks in to recharge it. CO2 emissions and air pollutants are all reduced (by up to 80%) and you also get long stints of silent light.
A full tank of fuel (50 litres) gives you 455 hours of light. The battery will power the lamps for 11 hours 30 minutes before it needs recharging. A full recharge takes 3 hours.
Reducing energy demand and efficient use of energy should be the prime focus of any energy project, but as a next step the fuel chosen to meet residual energy demand should be green, clean and safe.
Our renewable diesel is just that. It's the only fuel that we put in our machines and bowsers.
We can also refuel plant at your site with our renewable diesel.
Ever since we introduced the tipper trailer to the Film Industry in 2013 we had been looking to develop a more sustainable alternative. The EcoPod enables the user to separate 4 waste streams: food waste, compostables (Vegware), dry mixed recycling (DMR) and general waste. There is no cost for dealing with the recycling - we just charge for tipping the general waste.
This is proper closed loop, circular economy stuff. All food waste goes to an anaerobic digestion plant where it is broken down to create biogas and biofertiliser. Vegware compostables go to an ‘in vessel’ composting facility where they are turned into soil fertilizer. The DMR goes to a clean Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) where it is separated into raw materials for the remanufacturing of new products and the general (residual) waste goes to a dirty MRF, where any uncontaminated recyclables are recovered and non recyclables are processed into Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) for use in a Waste-to-Energy incinerator.
Waste & Recycling Stations
Waste & Recycling Stations
We spent an age searching for the perfect waste and recycling stations and found these beauties. They are super-robust and can be taken apart for storage or transportation. Each side has a sack holder so the user can easily see which bag he or she should be depositing into. The stations come complete with a double-sided sign-holder, allowing you to insert images of the waste streams you are collecting (we can provide the signage if you so wish).
Location mats are a brilliant alternative to correx. They arrive in a cage with heavy duty rubber casters, ready to roll to where you need them laid out. When the mats come back to us we give them a thorough hoover (and wash if needed) ready for the next user.
Evaporative air cooling uses up to 80% less energy than conventional air conditioning: it brings in 100% fresh outside air and utilises water for cooling instead of synthetic chemical refrigerants.
Our unit will help cool ventilated areas of up to 20.4m² . The cooler must be placed next to an open door or window in order to work effectively. You simply fill the unit with water and the machine blows air through the water mimicking the effect of a seabreeze, ahhh…
Commitment to Quality and Safety Assurance
The smooth and safe running of your shoot is paramount to you and paramount to us.
Here's a snapshot of all we do to keep our equipment and vehicles operating like clockwork...
- Periodic servicing and maintenance of all equipment and vehicles
- Sterilisation and testing of water in all water tanks and bowsers
- Formal inspection and PAT testing of all electrical equipment before each hire
- COVID-secure protocols for cleaning and delivery of equipment
- Daily monitoring and management of driving and vehicle compliance using Tachomaster software
We're up to a load more behind the scenes...
- Comprehensive Health & Safety systems, including Safe Systems of Work (SSoW) and staff training
- Daily QDIP meetings in all depots to assess and improve in the areas of Safety, Quality, Delivery, Inventory, Productivity and Environment
The Spanish Princess
"Thanks to all at Location One Bristol for the brilliant support you have given us over the last few months on this mammoth show. See you on the next one! "
"The Location One London team have been so solid, communication has been perfect. We had many changes over the course of filming yet nothing has slipped - from the delivery drivers to the prep team for the rental equipment I don’t have a single complaint."
Location One worked closely with us to ensure our production was as environmentally friendly as it could be when on location. The waste reporting has been really useful and allowed us to track how we were doing with our recycling.
"The service offered from Location One is second to none and allows me to get on with the things I need to be concentrating on. If something needs doing I can trust them to do it swiftly and without a fuss"
Fast and Furious 9
"The epitome of small enough to care, big enough to deliver! Shows like Fast & Furious need reliable and responsible suppliers who tick all of the health and safety and compliance boxes. Location One do that and their commitment to environment also makes them a 'go to' supplier."
Left Bank Pictures
"I have have worked with Location One over the last 10 years and have always found their team to work really well with our Location team on the ground. The back office support is also second to none, particularly around the accounts and purchase order process."
Dungeons and Dragons
"My first time filming in Newcastle was made one thousand times easier by Dave and his team of guys. Having his team help with set-up and strike of all of our locations was brilliant."
"The Manchester Location One Team are an extension of our Locations Department. Day or night they manage to come up with the goods in a professional and efficient manner."
"We could not film Vera without Location One's Newcastle Branch. The team are brilliant and the service comes with a smile and a 'can-do' attitude every time."
"Location One are like an extension of our department. Lovely staff and fantastic service!"
"I have been using Location One since 2008. Then in London, I am now in Wales and the service is as good now as it was when Crispin was delivering the bowsers. Personable and dependable, Location One truely cares."
