Turning on the football pitch with kinetic energy

Turning on the football pitch with kinetic energy

Pavegen installed 200 tiles into a local football pitch in Brazil. The kinetic-harvesting Pavegen tiles convert the energy from footsteps into electricity. It works day and night alongside solar panels to light the pitch and surrounding area for 10 hours a night on a fully-charged battery.
