Live Earth-Music to Save the Planet

Tieing in 2 major sectors on music and renewable energy-


A wide array of the world's top artists will perform at Wembley Stadium on7th July 2007 to help promote action to confront global climate change

Voller Energy Group PLC, the leading developer of portable fuel cell systems, is pleased to announce that the Company has been asked by the organisers of ‘Live Earth’ to supply four of its "ABC" fuel cell systems for use at the event, which takes place on 7th July.

Live Earth will use the global reach of music to engage people on a mass scale to combat our climate crisis. Live Earth will bring together more than 150 of the world's top musicians for 24-hours of music from 7 concerts across all 7 continents.

Fuel cell technology offers great benefits over the conventional generators that are normally used at music events. The Voller ABC units provide mains power output, but the only emissions are pure water. Stephen Voller, Chief Executive of Voller Energy said: "We are very proud to be supporting Live Earth, which is a tremendous event to help promote action to confront global climate change. The use of fuel cell technology at the event, demonstrates how we can all help reduce emissions. “
Live Earth will bring together an audience of more than 2 billion at the concerts and through television, radio, film, and the Internet. That audience, and the proceeds from the event, will create the foundation for a new multi-year global effort to combat the climate crisis led by former Vice President Al Gore. Kevin Wall, Worldwide Executive Producer of Live 8, is producing Live Earth.
Confirmed artists so far include Beastie Boys, Black Eyed Peas, Bloc Party, Corinne Bailey Rae, Damien Rice, David Gray, Duran Duran, Foo Fighters, Genesis, James Blunt, John Legend, Keane, Madonna, Paolo Nutini, Razorlight, Red Hot Chili Peppers & Snow Patrol.
