Human Body Heat Used To Power Buildings In Sweden


Engineers in Stockholm have discovered a new way to trap and use human body heat.
We usually look outside ourselves – to the sun, wind, or ocean -for a source of sustainable power. Stockholm real estate company Jernhusen decided to turn their search inward by creating technology that can channel the heat generated by the human body into a power-producing resource.
At Stockholm’s Central Station, heat-exchangers convert body heat into hot water which is then pumped to an office building next door, providing it with environmentally friendly and heating with energy costs reduced by up to 25%.
