The S-PARK is a bike rack, reimagined. It turns the energy produced by people on their bike, into electricity for their own neighborhood.
How does it work?
Simple. Every neighbour is given a special front wheel. Once installed, it stores the energy generated while cycling and braking in batteries.
And at the end of the day, when everyone comes back home and parks their bike, the energy is then redistributed into the neighbourhood’s electrical grid, providing enough clean electricity to power all the surrounding streetlights, to play video games or power a fridge during a full day.
The S-PARK is designed to fit perfectly in the Amsterdam cityscape, making a clean energy infrastructure part of the environment. Like electrons coming together as a stream, neighbours are coming together around an initiative that saves money and generate clean electricity.
