Dance Floor, Dancers, Power Club…

From HuffPo

Here’s the very cool part: the dance floor will be capable of generating 60% of the building’s electricity. The technology involves building a sprung floor and power generating blocks. The blocks are made of piezoelectric crystals which produce current when subjected to pressure. Dancers dance, blocks are squeezed and the current is fed into batteries used to electrify the nightclub. Don’t laugh, it is already being done in Rotterdam, Holland. It’s part of the programme for a new climate change organisation Club4Climate, set up by an enthusiastic entrepreneur who wants to open more eco-clubs in New York, Cape Town and Rio. Its motto: “All you have to do is dance to save the world”. :: Evening Standard
