The RE:GEN bike, developed by UK-based company Energym, features a generator unit that transfers the energy input from a person’s workout into green electrical power, stored within a portable battery unit.
On 17-18 November 2021 the Bloomberg Arcade in London became a hub for green energy creation, capture and storage.
Across the two days, more than 250 Bloomberg employees, clients and members of the public competed on 16 static Energym bikes to generate power. This was converted and stored in portable Ohm batteries that can be used as a source of green energy.
The challenge took place on the site of Bloomberg’s European headquarters in the City of London, one of the world’s most sustainable office buildings. An expected 32kWh of energy will be donated to London-based charity and Bloomberg Corporate Philanthropy partner, Greenhouse Sports, to power its after-school clubs.
