CROWDlight / light


CROWDlight is a system for collectingenergy from the “ground” and transforming it to the light. Microstructured piezoelectric power generator is
situated under the surface of the sidewalk transforming energy from steps into an electric charge. Great amount of people walking could produce
enough energy to charge the bateries, which than supply street lamps with the energy produced. Therefore this proposal is aimed for crowded city streets.
