Dancers’ moves help to power Glasgow music venue 舞者用舞步幫助英國格拉斯哥音樂場館供電

SWG3 is a huge warehouse which hosts major club nights.

“SWG3” 是一間大型倉庫,在夜間舉辦大型音樂休閒活動。

It claims to be the first in the world to use this type of heating and cooling system, and I’ve managed to get exclusive access.

據稱,這裡是世界上首個使用這種供暖和製冷系統的場所,而我得以前來一探究竟。

David Townsend, Founder of TownRock Energy
“You and I just standing here right now, we’re generating about 100, 150 watts of energy. When you start dancing, let’s say medium pace, like Rolling Stones or something, you might be generating like 250 watts. And then if you’ve got, like, you know, a big DJ, absolutely slamming basslines and making everyone jump up and down, you could be generating 500 to 600 watts of thermal energy.”

大衛·湯森     TownRock Energy 創始人
“你我現在只是站在這裡,就產生了大約100到150瓦的能量,當你開始跳舞時,比如跟著滾石樂隊的音樂跳中速的舞蹈,就可能會產生250瓦的能量。而如果現場有大牌DJ播放快節奏的鼓點,讓大家上蹦下跳,那麼每人就能產生500到600瓦的熱能。”

And that heat is then captured from the dancefloor and transferred to a series of 200-metre-deep boreholes which can be charged like a thermal battery.

然後,從舞池中產生的熱量被收集並輸送到一系列200米深的鑽孔中,可以像熱電池一樣充電。

The Bodyheat system is being turned on at a party – and what better way than an event honouring a dance that originated in Scotland? The Slosh, and with every step, each person is their own generator of renewable energy, which you can see using this forward-looking infrared camera.

在一次聚會上,Bodyheat 系統隨即啟動,還有什麼比在蘇格蘭舉辦一場活動,以此紀念源於當地的舞蹈更應景的呢?這種舞蹈叫 “Slosh”,你每跳一步,就通過自身的體熱再生出能量,你可以用這臺前視紅外相機看到人體產生的能量。

And after the dancing, the team look at the data.

跳完舞后,團隊會查看相關資料。

Andrew Fleming-Brown, SWG3 managing director
“Any development is… there’s risk attached to it. And when you’re putting in a system which is the first time ever, you’re taking a bit of a leap of faith. If we can make it work here in this environment, there’s no reason why we can’t take it to other venues, and other environments, and not just here in Scotland in the UK, across Europe and further afield.”

安德魯·弗萊明-布朗     SWG3總經理
“任何發展都伴有風險。當你是世界上首個投入使用一套新系統的人時,其實你是在冒險,大膽嘗試,如果我們能在這種環境中讓系統有效運作,就沒有理由不把它應用到其它場所和環境中,不僅僅是在英國蘇格蘭,而是推廣到歐洲各地,甚至更遠的地方。”

The team here are clearly committed to this new technology and the importance of doing their bit to help the environment, and clubbers have an extra reason to stay on the dancefloor all night long.

這支團隊顯然致力於發展這項新技術,並深知盡一己之力保護環境的重要性,而且舞者們也有了一個額外的理由可以整夜呆在舞池裡。
