A night club in London is now generating 60% of its energy requirements from the dancing of its patrons!
Under the dancefloor is a an array of piezoelectric elements that produce electric current when they are squashed by the dancers’ movements.
And it’s not the first. Another club in Rotterdam has been going for some time now using the same technology. Clever, isn’t it? I’d love to see more of this. Imagine generating electricity in public spaces like train station concourses or shopping centres, schools, libraries, museums just from the footsteps of the people walking through.
