Generate energy while partying

David Guetta and Renault both get that the only future is a more sustainable one. Renault UK wants to raise awareness and create exposure around their Zero Emission (Z.E.) Range by focussing on the new Renault Twizy and David Guetta partnership.

The worldwide campaign ‘Plug into the positive energy’ with David Guetta features an energy generating dance floor. The Renault commercials are part of Guetta’s new videoclip “The Alphabeat”. The inspiration for this came from Sustainable Dance Club’s  Sustainable Dance Floor™.

The Sustainable Dance Floor was launched in the market in 2008 as the world’s first energy generating floor. It uses dancing and moving people as a sustainable source of energy. The energy produced by movement is converted into electricity that is used to make the dance floor react to the public in an interactive way. The electricity can also be fed back to the electricity grid or used to power local systems such as LED-lights.
The Sustainable Dance Floor is now mainly used as eyecatcher for sustainable innovation at many events and exhibitions, ranging from a pavilion for renewable energy at the Olympics, in a club during the Brazilian carnival and in a campaign to present a new electric car at the Paris Auto show. It will probably take some time before this floor is used more in clubs. I wonder which club is cool and smart enough to take the first step.
