SAN DIEGO, May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beam Global, (Nasdaq: BEEM, BEEMW), the leading provider of innovative sustainable technology for electric vehicle (EV) charging, outdoor media and energy security, announced today that a globally recognized entertainment franchise has deployed the EV ARC™ solar-powered EV charging system to cleanly charge EVs and power onsite production equipment.

The EV ARC™ system provides clean, quiet energy, replacing loud and polluting generators often used in remote filming locations. The systems are transportable and can be relocated as production sites change. Beam Global is proud to partner with the entertainment industry to enable on set cast and crew to Drive on Sunshine.

“This is the first use of EV ARC systems by the entertainment industry. However, we anticipate growth in the area following on the heels of the recent carbon emissions report from the Sustainable Production Alliance,” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley. “This global entertainment powerhouse is leading the industry in sustainability by providing clean and green power that deploys rapidly with no construction, no electrical work and no utility bill.”

The customer is a member of the Sustainable Production Alliance (SPA), a consortium of the world’s leading film, television, and streaming companies dedicated to advancing sustainability initiatives and reducing the entertainment industry’s overall environmental impact. On April 1, 2021 the SPA published the results from its Carbon Footprint Report, Close Up: Carbon Emissions of Film and Television Production, which made public for the first time industry-wide production carbon footprint averages for SPA’s member companies Amazon Studios, Amblin Partners, Disney, Fox Corporation, NBCUniversal, Netflix, Participant, Sony Pictures Entertainment, ViacomCBS and WarnerMedia, 2016 to 2019. The productions were shot in major filming cities around the world, and all used the Production Environmental Accounting Report (PEAR), created in partnership by SPA and the Producers Guild of America Foundation’s PGA Green committee.
