Samsung and Pavegen have collaborated to give shoppers in Sandton City shopping mall a positive take on renewable energy, as part of Samsung’s ‘What If I Can’ campaign.

Last month, we reported how clean tech company Pavegen had installed six people-powered kinetic energy tiles in the middle of a corridor in SNCF’s Innovation & Research office in Paris in order to illuminate the corridor’s LED strip lighting. Now, they are going slightly bigger by placing a 68-tile walkway in Sandton City shopping mall in Johannesburg, as part of Samsung’s ‘What If I Can’ campaign. The kinetic energy system not only powers an interactive data screen, displaying real-time footfall data and providing an immediate visual payback, but the energy collected will be used to provide deprived communities in South Africa with lighting, heating and basic everyday amenities.
