NXTGENbps offers up a zero emissions power menagerie

NXTGENbps, a pioneer in sustainable power solutions, is making headlines for its innovative zero-emissions generators featured in a recent interview with The Flint, the global news and events hub for media industry sustainability.

With a compelling range of lithium-ion battery-based units, including The Meerkat, The Goat, and The Bear, NXTGENbps is on a mission to make production power in the film, TV, construction, and entertainment industries more sustainable.

Founder John O’Reilly, aka “Jono,” spoke to Neal Romanek Founding Editor of The Flint about the importance of decarbonising power and the superiority of battery-based solutions over traditional alternatives like diesel generators and hydrogen power.

Battery power is the cleanest and the best way forward for the industry. We do have HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) but the problem is that the top-grade oil is still 50% palm oil, and the sustainability is not so good there. And then actually driving back and forth between locations with a truck to refill the generators is not sustainable.


The NXTGENbps battery powered solutions not only reduce carbon footprint but also offer expandability and unique features like USB charging and EV compatibility. NXTGENbps is leading the way in sustainable production solutions, with products like The Owl providing essential monitoring capabilities for efficient power usage. As the industry shifts towards sustainability, NXTGENbps offers a promising path to a greener future.
