丹麦一家酒店近日推出一项低碳环保新举措,邀请入住的客人通过安装在酒店的脚踏发电自行车边运动边发电,如果发电量到达一定标准便可以免费享用一顿晚餐。这家酒店在声明中表示,通过脚踏自行车发电10瓦时以上的客人将会额外享受到一顿价值240丹麦克朗(约合28.5英镑)的当地风味美食;此举不但可以鼓励客人们多运动保持身体健康,同时还能减少他们的碳足迹,节电又省钱。据该酒店发言人介绍,脚踏自行车发电计划将于4月19日正式推出,并将试行一年,之后会考虑推广到其他连锁酒店。

The Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers, 15 minutes from the centre of the Danish capital and five minutes from Scandinavia& #39;s main airport, is installing two exercise bicycles hooked up to generators.

A Danish hotel is pioneering a pedal-power electricity generation scheme it hopes will catch on in other countries.

The Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers, 15 minutes from the centre of the Danish capital and five minutes from Scandinavia& #39;s main airport, is installing two exercise bicycles hooked up to generators.

Guests will be invited to jump on and start pedaling -- and if they produce enough electricity they will be given a free meal.

From June, they will be able to race against the 366-room hotel& #39;s solar panel system in a bid to produce the most electricity.

"Anyone producing 10 watt hours of electricity or more for the hotel will be given a locally produced complimentary meal encouraging guests to not only get fit but also reduce their carbon footprint and save electricity and money," the hotel said in a statement.

Hotel spokeswoman Frederikke Tommergaard said the free meal offer applied only to paying guests, not passers-by.

The value of the meal -- any one of the main courses on the hotel restaurant or lobby bar& #39;s menu -- is about 240 Danish crowns (28.50 pounds), she told Reuters.

The electric bikes will be up and running from April 19 and the plan is to test the idea for a year with a view to expanding it to more Crowne Plaza hotels, part of the InterContinental Hotels Group.
