You can now recharge your portable device with pedal power at Monaco Station! The "WeBike" terminal has three seats and enables users to recharge the batteries of their cell phones, computers or tablets by pedalling. An interactive display shows the level of power created by the user. On average, pedalling for ten minutes at a gentle pace makes it possible to recharge 10 to 15% of the battery.
A world first is taking place in Monaco. An innovative 3 year programme for the tourist industry called Smart+ is initially being offered free of charge to hotels in Monaco. It consists of a small internet connected box that enables hotels to measure their energy consumption, with no need for structural work or investment. It’s accompanied by an action plan, enabling them to make considerable energy savings. Thanks to the Smart + box and its valuable data, the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel amongst other measures changed 800 light fittings, thereby making significant energy savings, equivalent to one month per year.
