Pavegen is the invention of Laurence Kemball-Cook, 27, an industrial design engineer and graduate of Loughborough University.
The CEO and founder of Pavegen Systems began working on the idea in 2009 when he saw the requirement for renewable energy solutions where low-carbon technologies like solar and wind are not practical.
Pavegen tiles can be used in both indoor and outdoor locations and work best where there is high footfall, such as retail and transport hubs. The technology is integrated, discreetly into the existing environment, underfoot.
Permanent installations include UK schools, the HQ of a leading venture capital firm and an installation at Federation Square, Melbourne.
Pavegen units are also available in modular form for use in exhibition and marketing campaigns, and have already been used by leading brands and organisations to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and innovation.
