CONNECTING CITIZENS WITH CITIES
How do cities & buildings of the future inspire people?
By using technology that captivates the imagination of people, and gets them excited about playing their part in a more sustainable future. Pavegen’s smart kinetic tech harnesses the power of the natural resource that makes a city, a city: its citizens.
We use citizens’ footsteps to create off-grid, clean-electricity to bring your city or building to life. And we use a proprietary app, Pavgen GO, to connect you with those people and help you grasp what makes them tick.
Put the ‘smart’ in your smart city by contacting Pavegen to discuss what we can do for you.

INCENTIVISING HEALTHIER CHOICES THAT MAKE FOR HAPPIER PLACES
Our kinetic tech can be used to incentivise citizens to make more sustainable travel choices, for example, making it fun to follow healthier and safer pedestrian and cycle routes – or even an indoor running track. Pavegen-enabled walkways and cycle-ways could respond to movement and can be linked to our app to earn users’ points and benefits to provide further motivation and a sense of reward for doing the right thing. as the reward is a transaction between the participant-led generation of clean-electricity and the owner of the tiles there is instantaneously more trust between the user and the owner.
OUR TECHNOLOGY ASKS PEOPLE
IF YOUR FOOTSTEP CAN DO THIS,
WHAT ELSE CAN YOU DO?
INSPIRING & ENGAGING COMMUNITIES
Pavegen harnesses the power of every footstep to generate instant clean electricity for applications such as ambient lighting or data screens and display monitors. In this way, Pavegen’s kinetic systems give citizens a sense of ownership, putting the smart city at their feet, with visible results all around them in the form of exciting lighting, wayfinding, gamification displays, and more. Inspiring people to think and act differently. Our technology asks people if your footstep can do this, what else can you do?

UNDERSTANDING & RELATING TO YOUR AUDIENCE
Pavegen GO, our unique app, provides you with a deeper knowledge of your citizens and residents so you can understand and relate to them on a more meaningful level. In particular, the app helps you understand their values and beliefs as well as their behaviour, creating a truer picture of their wants and needs through emotional insights.
ENGAGING CONVERSATIONS TO UNDERSTAND & RELATE TO CITIZENS
Pavegen Go allows the community and owner of our tiles, such as local authorities, or building owners, to share ideas, views and values to build better, more connected cities. Our optional function means citizens can see when things are improving and are inspired to advocate for change when they see poor performance. Use Pavegen to relate to & engage with people in a new and more meaningful way.
HOW IT WORKS
As pedestrians walk across the Pavegen system, the weight from their footsteps compresses electromagnetic generators below, producing 2-4 joules of power of off-grid clean electricity per step. Low-Power Bluetooth beacons in the system connect to our app generating permission-based analytics and rewards for users. The system can act as a standalone installation or interact with building management systems.
SO TAKE THE #NEXT STEP
Pavegen has been installed 200 times in 36 cities all over the world, including three of the top five Smart Cities, according to the IMD Smart City Rankings.
We want to work with other cities looking to realise the potential of the smart city to educate the public, motivate healthier choices and anticipate the changing needs of citizens on the path to a more sustainable future focused on wellbeing as well as prosperity.
