This year’s Glastonbury Festival was part powered by Pee!
In a partnership between The University of the West of England (UWE) and Glastonbury Festival, special urinals were installed in two locations – next to the Pyramid Stage and in the backstage area between the Pyramid and Other stages – and used to generate enough electricity to power a mobile phone charging station, internal lighting and information panels.
The project is part of a 5-year partnership between Glastonbury Festival and UWE in which they will work together on waste reduction and energy efficiency as well as showcasing the Pee Power technology in advance of trials in refugee camps and schools in developing countries.
You can find out more about the project and the technology it uses on the UWE web site.
