Kinetic Plates to Power Sainsbury’s Checkouts

Kinetic Plates to Power Sainsbury’s Checkouts
Dan Gould

Utilizing the weight and motion of cars entering its parking lots, Sainsbury’s will generate a portion of its electricity through kinetic plates embedded in their parking lots. These plates will capture approximately 30 kWh per hour – enough energy to run each store’s checkouts.

Guardian: “Sainsbury’s brings green power to the checkout with ‘kinetic plates'”
