how does it work ?

We are Yannick, Milena and Florent who started the project of Vélo M² in Brussels, which base is a renewable energy platform on a cargo bike. The electricity comes from ordinary bicycles on bike stands that generate the energy, we call it people pedal powered. We like to power our open-air cinéma, our mobile 3D fablab or anything else. With 4 people on the pedals you can already show a movie -in contrast you need to invite 20 friends to heat the water for your coffee.

THE EVENTS

Our Vélo M² project has many possibilities in the themes of soft mobility, renewable energy and social cohesion. We’ll describe briefly what events we can organize.

* open-air cinéma, where 4 bikes provide the energy for projecting a film;
* renewable electricity, that can power sound systems, electrical tools, … the limit is the number of people on the pedals;
* mobile 3D fablab, where we design and print 3D objects for bicycle applications;
* coffee bar, serving coffee on the cargo bike in public spaces;
* promo stand, being a mobile promo desk for addressing people on events;
* or anything you can think of, we like to discover new applications !

Why do we charge for events ? The system itself costs several thousands and it needs maintenance. Manipulating the system needs some training so we remunerate the benevélos that are helping us out. Also for every few projection we can organize a lower cost projection for organizations that we support !
