Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Club WATT is a sustainable dance club powered entirely with kenetic energy created by dancing. I opened in 2008 and is located in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Partners in this is the Dutch sustainable innovation firm Enviu and the design studio Döll, and there were institutional and educational partners involved as well.

The picture shows the power catching system under the dancing floor. Look for more technical details.

In order to get as much power as possible loud music, the guests must be energetic. It is the task of the DJ to raise the spirits and speed. The systems is connected ot the ordinary electricity system, and there are svaings of about 30 percent on the electricity bill.
