Renewable energy innovation has an active program of renewable energy promotion. We have a number of pedal generators and solar PV system which can be used to interactively engage the public, helping to explain the concepts of power and energy and promote renewable energy sources and energy efficiency.
We created our pedal powered water cannons to do exactly that. Use water cannons to knock down environmentally themed targets with an upbeat soul soundtrack – all powered by human pedal power. We were asked to exhibit at Nottingham Carnival of Cycling, a Sustrans event to promote cycling in all its forms. Loads of activities and demonstrations were provided and we promoted pedal power alongside Junk4Funk, who helped keep the beat with recycled musical instruments.
