Abstract

In a gym or exercise facility, the kinetic energy produced can be is often not utilized. This study seeks to harness this wasted motion by using energy generating exercise bikes and/or elliptical machines in the new athletic facility at WPI. Energy generating exercise machines can be beneficial, by reducing the energy footprint of the new facility by power light fixtures, as well as educating the WPI community on energy generation.
