SportsArt Eco-Powr line feeds power, harnessed from exercise, back into the grid

SportsArt Eco-Powr line is designed to feed energy, harnessed from exercise, back into the grid
SportsArt has developed a new range of environmentally-friendly fitness equipment that could dramatically reduce a facility's carbon footprint, as well as lower operational costs.

Named as Best Facility Innovation at the 2018 Elevate Product Innovation awards, Eco-Powr is a series of sustainable cardio fitness machines, including: treadmills, bikes and elliptical machines, that features a built-in inverter that harnesses the wattage produced in exercise and converts it into AC Power before feeding it back into the grid.

The company claims that clubs, with an average of 30 pieces of cardio equipment operating for 8 hours a day, could save more than £15,000 in utility costs by switching over to Eco-Powr.

"Every fitness club has the potential to be a mini power plant capable of creating clean power - enough to reduce the world's carbon emissions and energy usage significantly," said SportsArt founder Paul Kuo.

"Imagine how many people who visit the gym each day working out on Eco-Powr equipment. Up to 74 per cent of each user's energy spent exercising would be converted into utility-grade electricity and fed back into the building's power grid."

Fruitful collaborations leveraging the revolutionary ECO-POWR™ technology has been developed. SportsArt is now working with Toshiba UK as part of the company’s commitment to developing innovative approaches to energy management for small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs).

Toshiba has been trialling ECO-POWR equipment at its Weybridge offices, with a view to including the technology in its portfolio of recommendations to the SME sector.

Commenting on the partnership, Tom Cunliffe, Chief Operating Officer at Toshiba Information Systems UK Ltd, said, “ECO-POWR is exactly the type of innovative technology we are looking for as part of our commitment to helping SMEs to reduce their energy consumption, and we are very pleased to be working closely with SportsArt on this important initiative.”
