Pavegen Systems

Pavegen Systems

Pavegen is a pioneering clean-technology company that utilises footsteps for off-grid energy creation, founded in 2009 by CEO Laurence Kemball-Cook. This means that through the simple action of a footstep, Pavegen can contribute towards sustainable energy in the urban environment, where people are a continuous resource.
Through the use of a wireless API, the tiles can collect, monitor and communicate real-time data; displaying a daily footfall count in certain areas or connecting to social media. Bridging the gap between the digital and the physical worlds allows Pavegen to integrate perfectly within the smart city infrastructure.
Over the years we have partnered with key brands such as Shell, Schneider Electric, Diageo, Uniqlo, Nike, Siemens, Westfield, Adidas and at West Ham tube station during the Olympics - to name a few. The success of Pavegen has allowed for over 100 installations in 30 countries.
Our vision is to provide the energy for future smart-cities, connecting and empowering people and communities across the globe, utilising footsteps to contribute to a greater environmental goal.
