Display module
Shows electrical data such as the energy stored in Storage Module of the SolarBiker.

Electronic Energy
Also known as power or electricity

Electric power production
The "production" of electricity is the transformation of another form of energy into electric energy, for example, the conversion of solar energy with the solar cells of the SolarBikers.

Electric motor
Electrical engine, which converts electrical energy into rotary motion, for example, the motor that powers the SolarBiker.

Ability to work. Those who work need energy!

Energy Storage
Storing energy for later use

Combination of electric engine and gearbox

Gears combination
Use of different gears on the SolarBiker, such as the gears with 20 and 60 teeth.
