The night club venue SWG3 is saving money and reducing energy use by harvesting body heat from people dancing and storing it for heating and cooling
A Scottish dance club is using the energy produced by people dancing and then turning it into heating and cooling solutions for the venue. The Glasgow venue known as SWG3 is then storing all this heat in underground rocks, to be recycled through the rest of the club.
According to a report by Euronews on Monday, November 14, the system called Bodyheat has been installed in different areas of the venue.
“What is great about BodyHeat is our audience participates in the system,” said Andrew Fleming-Brown, SWG3’s Managing Director in an interview, the report states. He added that anyone who has been to a busy venue is aware of the heat generated by the audience.
“Just by coming to an event, coming to a gig or a club, you are a part of that low carbon solution for the venue, and I think that’s really struck a chord with our audience” said, Andrew.
The report also adds that the club venue has a thermal heating and cooling system that captures heat emitted by all the visitors. This heat is then stored across 12 underground boreholes. It is eventually then used to heat or cool the club, whenever required.
