Off Grid Street Food

Café Môr, a multi-award winning street food offer based at Freshwater West and which serves locally sourced sustainable food, aims to develop the UK’s first off-grid mobile catering outlet. Mobile catering units are currently solely reliant on LPG gas to fuel cooking equipment and petrol generators to power fridges and freezers. This project will be the first of its kind and provide an example of how mobile catering can be powered by more sustainable resources. The project is to develop the existing mobile catering unit to operate without the need for an on-site generator. This will be achieved by installing photo-voltaic (pv) panels and a wind tubine to the roof of the trailer, a battery bank and DC/LPG compatible catering equipment or better energy efficient white goods. The project will be a pioneering project within the mobile catering industry and demonstrate the feasibility of reducing the use of fossil fuels to operate a mobile catering trailer. It will also mean that visitors to the trailer and beach will not experience the noise of the generator and provide visual evidence of how renewable energy and good design can provide all the services required to operate a trailer in a remote location. The exemplar project and a published case study will be widely publicised to show what can be achieved with renewable technology and raise awareness of the potential benefits of wider uptake by the mobile catering industry.
