Silent Energy is an interactive exhibit designed by Jannis Huelsen that enables participants to visualize energy consumption and discover new ways of converting kinetic energy into electricity. According to the photos, the installation appears to provide visitors the chance to explore a model home with what looks to be piezoelectronic components installed into various appliances and pieces of furniture.  When visitors use the appliances, a small amount of electricity is produced and gauges display just how much is electricity was generated from their action.

The exhibit highlights the multitude of untapped resources in a typical household, with bright green wires drawing attention to all the potential energy sources – including everything from ceiling fans and chairs to sink faucets and computer joysticks.
