Human body heat generates useful energy (BBC News)

One Swedish company decided to turn their search for a source of sustainable power into a power-producing resource.

from the hordes of commuters passing through Stockholm's Central Station to warm another building that is just across the road.

Engineers use heating exchangers to convert the Station's trapped body heat into hot water and then pump that water to an office building next door, providing it with environmentally-friendly and cost effective heating.

It is reported that this process can reduce a building's energy costs by up to 25 percent.
