in the states i’ve only seen bicycling to power blenders but even that is not mainstream yet. in denmark you can bicycle to power a buidling! at a hotel in Copenhagen, when guest cycles and creates 10 watts of energy, s/he gets a free meal. this is not only eco-friendly, but it also encourages us to exercise. it is a win win.
this crown plaza hotel is a one-year trial but if it is successful, it may be adopted around the world. i hope it is successful. we need to catch up to meet the needs for our environment!
