Pavegen is a clean technology company founded in 2009 by Laurence Kemball-Cook. Our vision is to redefine sustainability in the built environment, with the creation of a pioneering flooring technology that generates electricity from footsteps and captures data. Cities are growing at a rate of 1.5 million people every week and by 2025, up to 40 cities will have a population greater than 10 million. Our technology can connect and empower communities across the globe, utilising the power of footsteps to contribute to a greater environmental goal. We aim to improve the data-driven smart cities and inspire future generations to diversify the renewable energy mix of tomorrow.
HOW DOES THE PAVEGEN TECHNOLOGY WORK?
The Pavegen technology is a multifunctional custom flooring system. As people step on the tiles, their weight causes electric-magnetic induction generators to vertically displace, which results in a rotatory motion that generates off-grid electricity. Additionally, each tile is equipped with a wireless API that transmits real-time movement data analytics, whilst directly producing power when and where it is needed. Pavegen is also able to connect to a range of mobile devices and building management systems.
