Set for a spectacular double-header in the dark, the first sport to have net zero carbon since inception will once again use its platform to share a positively charged call-to-action, reminding fans that even the most intense and unpredictable racing can take place without the environment paying the price.

Lighting the track with the latest low-consumption LED technology will reduce energy consumption by up to 50% compared to non-LED technologies.

The remaining energy needed to power the floodlighting will be fully renewable provided by high performing low-carbon certified hydrogenated vegetable oil made from sustainable materials.

With a founding purpose to counteract climate change, Formula E's commitment to deliver better futures through racing drives its ongoing environmental, economic and social sustainability initiatives around the world.

The Diriyah E-Prix will run at 01:00am on 26 and 27 February 2021.
