Power Generation Through Walking With Energy Floors

A London-based startup company, produced floor tiles that convert kinetic energy from footsteps into renewable electricity means convert footsteps into electricity.

“The Pavegen technology offers the first tangible way for people to engage with renewable energy generation,” Pavegen 

Power generating tiles are a growing trend across the world. Pavegen is currently working with the German technology company Siemens to install the tiles in a square in Australia to power the lights there. There are also plans for power generating tiles in Lodon train stations in schools where it can be used to power the lights.

The tiles are 45-by-60 centimeters and glow a bright green when they are stepped on. They are made of recycled rubber and other recycled materials and were designed to be retrofitted in place of existing flooring systems.As a person steps on an Energy Floor tile, the tile flexes about 10 mm. That movement is converted into electricity -  15 Watts on average, and up to 25 Watts peak  depending on a person’s weight. The tiles are modular; connect 40 tiles together and the network can generate up to 1 kW. 


The Sustainable Dance Floor modules flex slightly when stepped on which creates a movement that can be transformed into electric power by a small internal generator. Each module by the size of 75x75x20 cm can produce up to 35 watt of sustained output. Between 5-20 Watt per person.
