Body heat of clubbers to help power Glasgow nightclub


A Glasgow nightclub has unveiled an innovative new system which will help power the venue using heat captured from clubbers.

SWG3 will launch its new BODYHEAT system on November 7 to coincide with COP26 and as part of the New York Times Climate Hub takeover of the facility.

Body heat from customers and staff will be captured before being transported to a series of boreholes which are currently being installed throughout the venue, with SWG3 saying it can be stored for days, weeks and even months.

It added that the technology will ‘drastically’ reduce its energy usage, with it having the potential to save up to 70 tonnes of carbon per year.

Andrew Fleming-Brown, MD of SWG3, said, “It’s a very exciting time for us at SWG3 with work about to begin on the first phase of the innovative BODYHEAT project.”
