Pavegen

Pavegen created an innovative paving system that harnesses the kinetic energy from human footsteps to produce electricity.                     

The technology works best in high-footfall urban environments, providing a sustainable off-grid energy solution, where other renewable solutions (such as solar and wind) are unsuitable.

Pavegen's technology has received numerous accolades, including a shortlisting at the Brit Insurance Design Awards 2011 and the Big Idea prize at the Observer Ethical Awards 2011.

The largest commercial demonstration of Pavegen's technology will be installed at the Westfield Stratford City Shopping Centre on a walkway linking to the Olympic Village, potentially supplying half of the centre's outdoor lighting energy needs.
