Kinetic Energy Generation From Footsteps Born in the UK, pavegen has developed an energy recovery system powered through footsteps. Pavegen harnesses the kinetic energy from footsteps and converts it into renewable electricity. By stepping, jumping, or hopping on a 'pavegen floor tile', users create clean, off-grid electricity used to power multiple applications – from lighting, to interactive learning displays and charging points. Data can be collected on the harvested input.

A new paving technology could transform pedestrian footfall into a major source of renewable energy for heavily frequented urban thoroughfares.
