A Scottish nightclub is trialling an innovative new system that will harness the body heat of gig-goers and dancers to help power the venue and reduce its carbon emissions.
The Glasgow multi-arts venue SWG3 will pilot the technology during November’s COP26 Climate Summit as part of The New York Times Climate Hub takeover of the premises.
The trailblazing project will be launched centre stage by fashion icon and world renowned DJ Honey Dijon.
“Anything we can do at this moment to help climate change is a positive thing,” she said.
“This new system of channeling energy from the dance floor is something innovative and sustainable.”
BODYHEAT’s technology will harness wasted heat energy of clubbers and staff in boreholes located throughout the complex and in turn power the club’s electricity, air conditioning and speaker system.
