Thanks to Laurence Kemball-Cook, director of Pavegen Systems Ltd., energy generating pavement is now a possibility. The way it works is simple – every time a rubber Pavegen stone is stepped on it produces kinetic energy. This energy is stored within the slab’s lithium batteries or simply distributed to nearby lights, information displays or any other energy requiring applications.

Thanks to Laurence Kemball-Cook, director of Pavegen Systems Ltd., energy generating pavement is now a possibility.

When a user walks on a slab it produces a glow simply informing the person that they have just created energy. The slabs are created from marine grade stainless steel, recycled tires, and recycled aluminium. 24-year old Kemball-Cook wanted to create something that would save energy without people knowing it, but knowing that walking to work could create energy would make a long walk well worth it.
