In Russia, they learned to collect energy from the steps of pedestrians



Scientists from the Ivanovo region have developed a flooring design made of panels that can generate electricity from the steps of pedestrians. This energy could be used to illuminate streets, shop windows, etc.

This floor covering consists of panels with a maximum thickness of 75 mm. They consist of a piezoelectric generator and a wiring system. If a person walks on such a surface, energy is generated and converted into electricity. It can either be stored in batteries or directly directed to street lighting.

The coating is made on the basis of highly porous piezoelectric ceramics, made using a specially developed technology that increases its resource by 2.5 times. One step of an adult produces about 30 watts. This is enough to power five LED bulbs.
