Everything eBikes! (hosted by Carbon Co-op and EcoHome Lab)

Ever thought of getting an electric bike?

eBikes are increasingly popular way to decarbonise city transport systems and people are using them for commuting, leisure, haulage or just as a replacement for a car.
But where do you start if you’re interested, what’s the difference between a hub and a crank motor and how far will a 36w 10Ah battery get you?

At this event we explore everything eBikes, including the pros and cons of commuting, retrofitting an existing bike and what specifications to look out for, we’ll sharing advice and knowledge from a range of experts.


– Jonathan Atkinson, Carbon Co-op on Commuting by eBike
– Trystan Lea of OpenEnergyMonitor on retrofitting a standard bike
– Eleanor Sherwen on working on the Brompton Electric development and the eBike market

The event will be very social with refreshments available and paid for bar.
