Walking with a spark in your step!

A forward thinking town in Shropshire has become the first in the UK to introduce a pavement that generates electricity when pedestrians walk on It.

Telford & Wrekin Council have introduced a new bouncy pavement which can generate electricity from people's footsteps to power two nearby public charging points.

The technology used by Telford & Wrekin Council for this 6-meter-long smart footpath easily converts energy to charge mobile phones or other devices. If pedestrians want to know how much electricity they’ve generated, they can look at the solar-powered screens at Tedford Central station

The smart pavement is part of a £4 million project by the council to invest in plans addressing climate change.

Councillor Carolyn Healy said it was an "engaging" way to show how clean electricity can be generated. She said, "In Telford the pavement will make people much more aware about climate change issues... because this is something that is engaging, you can walk across it when you're coming back off the train into Telford, you can see the screen will pop up and tell you the energy you're creating."

Here at Protest ES Ltd we love the idea of a charging pavement as it is a fun way to keep the climate conversation going and nudge people to consider how they can help the UK become more sustainable.
