Interactive flooring for smart city projects
Pavegen has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Siemens to bring its technology to smart city projects around the world.
Roads Generate Electricity for Even the Toughest Tasks
A solar roof on a road will make twice as much electricity per unit area compared to a solar road and be more easily upgraded to affordable higher efficiency PV as it becomes available.
Google partners with Pavegen on energy harvesting walkway
Pavegen has partnered with Google to make Berlin's 2017 Festival of Lights interactive. The installation incorporates Pavegen's award-winning V3 flooring system which converts the kinetic energy of footsteps into off-grid energy and data.
Make Electricity Where You Need It
While grid load from electric vehicles is expected to rise in the near future. Engineers are already looking for solutions to make electric vehicles function independently of the grid.
Energy harvesting smart street in London
Visitors will be able to enjoy a traffic-free shopping and dining experience in an environment showcasing the latest in sustainable technologies. Bird Street are partnering with a host of tech visionaries including Pavegen who manufactures an award-winning electricity and data generating flooring technology.
Pavegen harvests power from footsteps in Washington DC
Pavegen has been working with the US Federal Government on their flagship US V3 installation in Washington DC, just walking distance from the Whitehouse.
New product announcements from the IDTechEx Show! exhibition hall
From the Exhibition Hall at the IDTechEx Show! in Santa Clara last week came a wide variety of new product announcements and press releases. Here we summarize some of the announcements.
Pavegen further develops energy harvesting floor tiles
Pavegen is shifting to become a permanent and commercial smart-flooring solution. The technology has evolved from a singular tile, which generates electricity from footsteps, to an entire array with three multi-functional component parts. These functionalities are called: floor, data and energy.
Opportunities for start-ups at the IDTechEx Show! Berlin
Analyst IDTechEx helps start-ups by letting them exhibit free in its big shows such as the forthcoming "IDTechEx Show!" in Berlin April 27-28 with over 150 exhibitors, over 2500 paying delegates and eight parallel conferences, two of them strongly featuring high power energy harvesting both from ambient energy and by recuperation in vehicles.
Solar roads find many uses
Installing photovoltaics in roads seems a daft idea at first. It sounds expensive and unlikely to work unless cleaned, free of snow and ice and in direct sunlight - all too infrequent in most places. Indeed, roads are constantly dug up by utilities, repairmen and others. How do you do that with sheets of glass?
Africa's first player & solar powered football pitch
The football pitch was refurbished by Shell using more than 90 underground tiles that capture kinetic energy created by the movement of the players. The kinetic energy is then stored and combined with power generated by solar panels to operate the new floodlights.
Radically new energy harvesting in the form of magnetostriction
Energy harvesting is the creation of off-grid electricity where it is needed using ambient energy, from sunshine to vibration or temperature difference.
Electric vehicle will offer free non-stop road travel
The new IDTechEx Research report, "High Power Energy Harvesting 2015-2025" (www.IDTechEx.com/high) appraises the many new ways in which the vehicle will internally harvest energy that is currently wasted as tyre and brake heat etc. so it needs much less externally supplied energy to get along. That alone will get us to a range of up to 1000 miles. In this article, let us look at how the increasingly infrequent charging can be done automatically without involving the driver and how it can grab externally-supplied electricity created from free ambient energy.
