Pay With Energy Café

Agency Network: 
May 2017


Everyone uses electricity, it is central to our daily lives. But there is little thought put to its actual value and how it is made. To help get people thinking harder about energy, we opened the world’s first “pay with energy” café. In this unique space, you could not pay with cash, or credit card. The only accepted form of currency was energy. Customers generated their own energy by using pedals installed on the bar stools or stepping on special energy-capturing floor tiles. They could then exchange that energy for a sustainable cold brew coffee. 

During its duration, the cafe generated millions of joules, on top of sparking a greater social conversation that spread far beyond the café itself.
