WHO WE ARE
Big ideas can come from anywhere, even Birmingham…
The UK’s second city is thousands of miles from Australia’s bleached-to-bone coral reefs. Birmingham doesn’t have the smog of New Delhi, Beijing or Kathmandu; the drip-drip of ancient glaciers into the waters around Greenland is something we’ve only seen on the television, but even from here it’s clear that some delicate balance has shifted, that something is going seriously wrong with our planet. We have less than a decade to reverse the damage we’ve caused. Industry was born in Birmingham, and climate change has its roots in this city; we take that personally.
Working with the country’s top universities and engineers, Energym has developed highly efficient patent-pending systems to capture and convert human energy, turning it into useable electrical power and incentivising its use through exercise and fitness.
We want to enable every gym to reduce energy costs, to become self-sustaining and to achieve zero-carbon status.
An experienced energy reduction analyst, commercial director and lover of all things fitness, Will established Energym in 2017.
For years, it remained nothing just a concept in his mind, but after undergoing a life-changing experience, Will decided to travel the world.
On a diving trip in the Great Barrier Reef, he was shocked at what he witnessed. What one week was an underwater utopia, teaming with tropical life… the next was a pale coral skeleton, still, lifeless and dead. Climate change is the issue, and WE are the cause.
When Will returned he decided to bring his concept to life, fusing his two major passions: fitness and technology. Energym was born.
