Planned for the city of Copenhagen, the Nazli Yucel 'Bike Park' promotes green living in two ways. The cycle-happy Danish city can begin to recruit more bikers with an increase in the number of bicycle shelters in the streets, reducing the quota of cars on the road. By giving shelters a flat side on which solar panels can be attached, the Nazli Yucel 'Bike Park' also succeeds at massing energy in a renewable way.

The possibility for it to harness 1,630 hours of sun each year will ensure that Copenhagen can have at least its traffic and street lights powered through this system, but the potential within these Nazli Yucel 'Bike Park' shelters will surely proliferate.
