QHotels introduce pedal powered meetings

Because schmoozing clients doesn’t have to cost the Earth…

Pedal PowerWant to make an impact at your next business meeting? Why not show your clients that you really mean business (and boost your eco credentials) by using pedal power to fuel your meeting?

QHotels is offering a new eco experience for businesses, giving its conference, training and event delegates the chance to provide electricity for their meetings through pedal power.

The hotel group is trialling its ‘Pedal Power’ eco initiative at Forest Pines Hotel and Golf Resort near Lincolnshire, where delegates will be required to continuously pedal with the bicycle generator to convert 100 watts of energy in order to power enough electricity to charge a laptop. The bicycle generator operates in a similar way to a wind turbine with the magnetic force passing through coils of wire to generate power.

And this isn’t the first time QHotels have done their bit for planet Earth: last year electric car charging posts were installed at six hotels. Very cool indeed!

And speaking of pedal power, we love this video exploring whether pedals could power the world…

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/
Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
