Energy Efficiency Demonstration Bike

Description: 

Designed and built to meet the requirement for an eye-catching and interactive display for trade shows, exhibits, and conferences, the Energy Efficiency Demonstration Bike demonstrates the concept of energy efficiency in a manner that is both fun and educational. The cyclist spins a generator to make electricity which is used to power either a compact fluorescent or incandescent light bulb by way of a switch. By having to physically supply the power to each light bulb, the cyclist gains an experiential understanding of energy efficiency.

Designed and built by Eesmyal Santos-Brault
Client: BC Sustainable Energy Association
