Dancing to lower Scottish nightclub’s emissions: A Glasgow nightclub has started a project to apply the body heat of club-goers & dancers to help power the venue as well as minimise its carbon footprint.

The arts venue SWG3 says the alleged BODYHEAT project will secure body heat from customers & staff before depositing it into boreholes set up throughout the venue.

The technology is expected to lower the site’s energy usage as well as save nearly 70 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually.

The drilling of as much as 17 boreholes is set to begin in the coming weeks as part of the venue’s partnership with the geothermal energy consultants TownRock Energy & engineering company Harley Haddow.

The system will be brought in on 7th November to occur simultaneously with the COP26 summit.

Honey Dijon, a DJ who will be playing music at the launch event, stated: Anything we can do at this moment to help climate change is a positive thing. This new system of channelling energy from the dance floor is something innovative & sustainable.”
