Livepower: Power generated in part or in whole by the living, e.g., man, horse, sun, wind, water, wood, e.g. What might modes are livepowerable? Bicycles, tricycles, roller blades, sailboats, and horse carriages, for instance, qualify. What’s remarkable about these modes? They outperform motor vehicles in cities—now more than any time in recent memory. Manpowered worktrikes, for instance, move at the speed of NYC (4-9 mph according to NYCDOT) regardless of vehicle congestion; humelec worktrikes, on the other hand, move even faster about town whilst still suffering little to no decrease in performance within streets contested with vehicles.
Modes designed for life are ones that capture livepower and operate solely by this power when necessary, requiring zero fossil inputs or infrastructure to function such that when panels or petrol are unattached or unavailable the show rolls on – albeit possibly a bit more slowly and steadily at times.
With motor-assist systems flooding our industry, it’s worth noting that Revolution carefully builds and operates systems that honor our livepower mission.
Fossilfree infrastructure? Yes, it’s part of the larger mission as well—and it’s with us, even today: dig beneath the fossil-laden asphalt across much of NYC, e.g., and you’ll find fossil-free infrastructure constructed via livepowered processes. Such infrastructure includes petrol-free brick, stone, clay, Belgian block, water, and steel. Delivering high-performance citymile logistics results within today’s petroleum-drenched logistics playing field in NYC, Revolution produces satisfied customers whilst delivering also a return on investment to NYC herself via cleaner air, fitter workers, and feather-light touches on city infrastructure.
Revolution empowers companies and end-users to forge deeper relationships with the ways goods and services in which they invest move about NYC. In partnership with our vendors and customers, Revolution creates growing capacity for New Yorkers to generate the superior results we’re so driven to produce—while honoring our citizenry, land, and ecology in the process.
