BBC 5 LIVE ENERGY DAY

TBI Media proved how effective renewable energy could be as it produced Energy Day for BBC 5 Live in Salford, powering its entire studio for 12 hours with renewables including people-generated pedal-power.

Edward Davey visited the Salford Media City to take part Radio 5’s Live audience discussion “Your call” and Nicky Campbell’s breakfast show on the UKs future energy mix and simplifying energy bills.



The day’s programme included:

– an outside studio powered purely on renewable energy;
– Richard Bacon’s show powered solely by exercise bikes ridden by guests including Olympian Chris Boardman, and
– a consumer energy special in which Britain’s leading energy companies discuss energy prices and bills.

Other interactive energy-harnessing experiments that took place on the Media Plaza included the re-use of chip fat from the BBC canteen, wind turbines and kinetic energy from a human hamster wheel.
