Everytime someone walks over the Pavegen tile, renewable energy is harvested from the footstep. The technology converts the kinetic energy to electricity which can be stored and used for a variety of applications.
What it can do
The energy harvested by the Pavegen tile can immediately power off-grid applications such as pedestrian lighting, way-finding solutions and advertising signage or be stored in an on-board battery in the unit.
For increased engagement with pedestrians we can also integrate a central lamp which uses only 5% of the renewable electricity output to illuminate.
What it can be used for
The technology is best suited to high-footfall urban environments. The Pavegen technology offers the first tangible way for people to engage with renewable energy generation.
The top surface of the flooring unit is made from 100% recycled rubber and the base of the slab is constructed from over 80% recycled materials. The system can be simply retrofitted in place of existing flooring systems as well as specified for new developments.
The Pavegen tiles are designed to be used in the harsh outdoor locations with high footfall. The slabs are waterproof to allow them to operate efficiently in both internal and external environments.
Pavegen units are CE fully compliant which is a mandatory conformity mark for any products placed on the market in the European Economic Area. Further information on this can be viewed by clicking the heading above.
