ZAP Concepts is an award winning international energy consultancy, specialising in energy assessment and optimal design and management of power supplies for sports events, music festivals, cultural programmes and broadcast.

Our purpose is to enable rapid transition from large scale fuel use and large energy carbon footprint to low carbon, energy effi cient operations.

Our work has covered all the major aspects of live event power:

  • Energy Assessment and Carbon Reduction Strategies for large scale events with both temporary and permanent infrastructure on green fi eld sites, urban sites and stadia
  • Low carbon off-grid solutions for backup power, temporary venues and broadcast
  • Integration of battery systems into temporary and permanent supplies for backup and boosting capacity (peak shaving)

Our approach

  • A fresh approach to power management for large scale public events, with a focus on delivering effi ciencies through the implementation of our unique smart power plan.
  • Matching energy production to actual demand
  • Integrating renewables and energy storage systems into the energy mix
  • Reducing fuel burn and carbon footprint
  • Monitoring performance and tracking emissions

Our Team


Paul ‘Mr Energy’ Schurink founded ZAP Concepts in The Netherlands in 2011. He holds the degree Master of Business in Energy systems (MBE) and has over 30 years event power experience in international projects (Olympics Athens & Torino, UEFA Championships, Volvo Ocean Race and many large scale international

music festivals). Paul is a specialist in grid connected systems, battery systems and zero/low emissions power and works across the globe on high profi le live events of all types.


Rob is Head of Operations for ZAP Concepts and holds the degree Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Environmental Science. He has 25 years experience in Sustainability and Environmental Management, with a focus on renewables and energy effi ciency, 20 years of which have been spent in large scale

event production. This includes over 15 years as the site manager of one of the most energy efficient and sustainably powered areas of Glastonbury Festival and 6 years carrying out energy monitoring, assessment and power management roles at large scale events in the UK, Ireland, Spain, The Netherlands and, most

recently, China. Rob is an associate member of the Energy Institute and the Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment.
