Do you know, when you walk, you produce energy? But, unfortunately it disappears into the ground, and can’t be put to better use! Yeah, I am talking about harvesting this energy. Don’t know if this is possible! But, an optimistic architectural firm in the UK wants to use crowds as a source of renewable energy! The Discovery News revealed this.
This is how the Discovery News article opened to introduce the amazing source of alternative energy; one may never have thought of or claimed of before the firm -
The tremors from passing trucks, the rumblings of speeding trains, and even the pitter-patter of little feet could soon be captured and converted into energy to light walkways and buildings.
London-based Facility Architects is working on a project called Pacesetters that aims to literally harness the pulse of a city and reuse it as a renewable energy source.
According to the Discovery News, during rush hours, about 34,000 commuters pass through Victoria underground station. Do you know the energy they produce – which now disappears into the ground — could theoretically generate enough energy to power 6,500 LED light fittings!
