Club Gloria

The “Gloria” is a former cinema and theatre and since the early 90s a well-known event location in the vibrant city Cologne. In the year 2000 the venue was entirely renovated and equipped with the most advanced technical equipment. After its makeover, it hosted shows for well established bands like Placebo, the Foo Fighters or newcomers like Hot Chip. Today it still serves as a theatre, club and café – the “Gloria” is an all-rounder when it comes to hosting events. Even though they were already well on track with their energy performance, they still became a partner of the Green Club Index pilot project.

After they received a personalised energy audit, they implemented sixteen single measures that we were able to identify, and thereby managed to save roughly 30% of their energy within one year. Some of these measures were as simple as adjusting the temperature of their fridges (350 kWh per annum saved) or switching them off when not needed (approx. 2,000 kWh per annum saved), other measures needed some support and mentoring such as exchanging their existing lighting system with a more energy efficient one (approx. 27,000 kWh per annum saved).
