Even when the sun doesn’t shine and the wind doesn’t blow, a new renewable energy tile quietly captures kinetic energy from footfall traffic and converts it into energy to power lights, even indoors. And that is exactly what Pavegen is doing with its Kickstarter campaign. If this campaign is fully funded, two lucky schools (one in the U.S. and one in the U.K.) will receive a Pavegen installation that will light up a hallway inside the schools using renewable energy from the student’s foot traffic. But even better, the Pavegen installation will act as an interactive classroom where students learn about kinetic energy generation and wider sustainability and renewable energy initiatives.
Back Pavegen for Schools and put your own school in the running for a full Pavegen installation.
