Powering sustainability: MotoGP™’s positive impact in Portimão

The Autodromo Internacional do Algarve has a whole range of initiatives set to make the upcoming Portuguese GP even more sustainable

On track, 2024 sees every Grand Prix class using minimum 40% sustainable fuel as our race towards zero carbon fuels begins. Off track, there are plenty of initiatives too as digital passes replace physical ones for MotoGP™ guests, and scooters in the paddock go electric in Europe. Not to mention the imminent return of our parallel path of sustainable innovation as the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Championship begins in Portugal this season.

Sustainable Transportation

45 low emission shuttles chartered by the circuit connect the nearby town of Portimão with the track during the weekend, and they all run on renewable fuel – as do all support vehicles used during the Grand Prix. Once fans arrive on site, they can then head to their favourite vantage points via four electric buses provided by the circuit.

Renewable Energy

Solar panels supply renewal energy to the media centre and track facilities, generating up to 250Kw from the installation behind Turn 15 and 1Mw from the new rooftop installation. The renewable fuel** used for the required satellite power generators will also be sourced from non-fossil origins. This combination adds up to that zero-carbon power solution to cover all energy demands for the event.

Circular Economy

Aiming for as circular an economy as possible, the waste recycling across the weekend is all certified, and there’s a specialist system for the collection and treatment of oils. Residual water treatment promotes water conservation as it is repurposed for green areas. An anti-littering team will also be on site in public areas to make sure every spectator can enjoy the best possible weekend.

Once the weekend concludes, leftover food collections will also directly benefit people in the community thanks to partnerships with national third-party associations, minimising waste.

The direct economic impact of the event in 2023 was over €45 million, and it’s only expected to rise this season as MotoGP™’s presence continues to make a positive impact on people, place and planet. So join us trackside or tune in from around the world as MotoGP™ returns to the stunning Autodromo Internacional do Algarve from the 22nd to the 24th of March for the most sustainable Portuguese GP yet!

*ISO 20121 is an international standard that establishes the requirements to help organizations and individuals improve the sustainability of their event-related activities. It offers a practical tool so that the activities, products, and services related to an event can contribute to the three dimensions of sustainability: economic, environmental, and social.

** Renewable fuel: 100% Renewable Diesel is an advanced biofuel produced from raw materials sourced from waste. Its use ensures a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) between 75% and 92% (Values obtained according to the methodology of Directive 2018/2001, regarding the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources (RED II), compared to the corresponding fossil fuel).
