Pavegen partnered with Google to make the Berlin Festival of Lights interactive, via its award-
winning kinetic technology, which converts footsteps into off-grid energy and data.
The footsteps of visitors to the world’s largest single energy harvesting array were converted into off-
grid electrical energy, enabling a synchronised lighting display and relaying data on the energy output
to a web page.
Customer experience is an essential consideration of any retailer. With an increasing shift to online shopping, more than ever, retailers are looking for unique and innovative ways to bring brick-and-mortar stores to life. Mercury Mall wanted to drive footfall and create unique experiences for its shoppers whilst increasing downloads of its in-store app.
By utilising customers’ footfall, the Mercury has placed visitors right at the heart of the shopping experience. Installing a clean energy-generating Pavegen array at the entrance of the mall, allows shoppers the opportunity to participate in an entirely new experience from the moment they step into the Mercury. As well as being able to generate off-grid electricity, users can now be rewarded for their sustainability efforts. Points earned from their steps can be redeemed at existing retailers within the mall, prompting loyalty and driving further footfall to the Mercury.
GAMIFYING SIEMENS PURPOSE
Pavegen is based in King’s Cross, in the heart of London’s tech revolution. We’re just a few minutes’ walk from King’s Cross and St. Pancras International Stations. Our research and development centre operates in Cambridge, the innovation hub of the country.
From now being able to offer visitors an entirely new experience, the Mercury has also been able to demonstrate its commitment to sustainability through a tangible outlet.
