Project Vélo M²

How do you like to consume your energy ? We at Vélo M² like to make music with our energy, we love to project movies and to power 3D printers.

Find our story on facebook. We make electricity with generation bikes, we call it People Pedal Power. It is fun, join us !


The bicycle is a perfect alternative for transportation in the city. We especially use it to transport our modules on the cargo bike. Like our modules to make cinéma, the other one for 3D printing, or our pride, the energy module.


The energy module makes electricity out of bicycles on rollers. It buffers and it transforms into nice 230V AC. This makes it possible to have around 350W of energy in the places where you meet people on the bicycle, like parks and other public spaces.


Are you a maker, or someone who wants to get her/his hands useful, does your organisation organises en event ? Connect with us, join us on at OpenFab or at one of our events, or become a benevélo and get to know the Vélo M² project. Hire us for an open-air cinéma or a 3D printing workshop, or even donate to support our projects.


how does it work ?


Do you wish to give an ecological touch to you event ?

Our Vélo M² project has many possibilities in the themes of soft mobility, renewable energy and social cohesion.


Our project makes it possible to generate electricity with the help of ordinary bicycles. With this 100% green energy we can power any event :

  • Open-air cinéma, where 4 bikes provide the energy for projecting a film;
  • Sound systems, electrical tools, charging cellphones… the limit is the number of people on the pedals;
  • A mobile 3D fablab, where we design and print 3D objects for bicycle applications;
  • Coffee bar, serving coffee on the cargo bike in public spaces;
  • A promo stand, being a mobile promo desk for addressing people on events;

Open Source Hardware

One of our values is to share what we learn by making our projects open sourced following the principles of Open Source Hardware with our partner in crime OpenFab.
