Challenge

To educate students and staff about a tangible renewable energy solution in Pavegen’s first school install, inspiring young people to think differently about energy.

Solution An installation of 24 kinetic tiles covering over 5 metres of a corridor. Not only does the system harvest energy to power on-demand lighting, but the tiles are fitted with wireless technology that provides real-time footfall data.

Solution

An installation of 24 kinetic tiles covering over 5 metres of a corridor. Not only does the system harvest energy to power on-demand lighting, but the tiles are fitted with wireless technology that provides real-time footfall data.

Impact Due to the innovative and educational benefits of our technology, the install gained a special feature on BBC News. The kinetic tiles save electricity and help students recognise the opportunities for an off-grid energy technology within high footfall areas, regardless of the weather.
