The Smart Energy Floor engages people in the built environment in sustainable energy generation. The tiles of this smart floor are equipped with walkable solar panels, converting solar power to sustainable energy. Motion sensors collect data about pedestrian movement across installation sites.
The Smart Energy Floor is a solar floor (i.e. not kinetic). Its only energy source is solar power, which is converted by walkable solar top sheets. These PV panels generate a significant energy output with an efficiency rating of two-third of regular PV panels: 35 Watt per tile. This generated electricity is fed into local grids.
Interactive energy floor
The smart energy floor is interactive: it powers LED lighting and signage, which helps making the abstract matter of sustainable energy creation more tangible and approachable. This way we aim to raise awareness and contribute to the worldwide energy transition.
The smart floor tiles are largely produced using recycled materials. Seen throughout the life cycle (10 years) a floor is energy neutral.
