Crowne Plaza may sound like just another hotel for you, but there’s one in Denmark that has managed to show some forward-thinking into the 22nd century. Yes… I’ll say the next century as they’ve managed to find an effective way to produce energy, save money, gain interest in an old industry and make money at the same time.

The Copenhagen Tower Crowne Plaza in Denmark has sparked alot of media interest recently due to their energy-efficient way to run the hotel. They encourage customers to go to their gym where they can cycle their way to create energy for the hotel. It’s rare nowadays to have something “free”, but at this hotel they’ll give you a voucher for dinner if you cycle for 20 minutes and of course you get the exercise!

The new hotel is also designed with an energy efficient kitchen where the waste is turned into bio-fuel.
