Green Ideas - Bar Surya, London

Disco pub gets electricity produced by people dancing at specially modified dance floor.

All the flashing strobes and pounding speakers at the dance club are massive consumers of electrical power. So Bar Surya, in London, re-outfitted its floor with springs that, when compressed by dancers, could produce electrical current that would be stored in batteries and used to offset some of the club's electrical burden. The club's owner, Andrew Charalambous, said the dance floor can now power 60 percent of the club's energy needs.

Certainly gimmicky, Club Surya reflects how aware everyone is becoming about global issues. It's really quite surprising that nobody thought of this earlier. This club is cool as an idea if not in substance.
