Technologies

  • Promising tests for MotionPower system to generate electricity from traffic - The ongoing testing of the MotionPower system for generating electricity from the movement of cars and light trucks is paying dividends. New Energy, the company developing the technology, reports it can produce a 25-fold increase in the system’s capacity to capture kinetic energy from moving vehicles. (GizMag; Oct. 21, 2009)
  • Human-Powered >
    In a twirl with the Chukka Kinetic Music Player - The Chukka Kinetic Music Player combines electromagnetic induction with a unique design that encourages the user to twirl it around the fingers, throw it about and otherwise toy with it. The result - an eco-friendly personal media player that also gives you the stress relieving benefits of tactile interaction and repetitive physical motion (GizMag; August 11, 2009)
  • Verdant Power LLC - A world leader in commercializing low-impact kinetic hydropower solutions, harnessing the energy from river, tide, and man-made channels. Prototype array is presently producing power for customers.
  • England grocer produces energy with ‘kinetic plates’ - Sainsbury’s market of England has installed ‘kinetic energy’ plates in the parking lot of it’s store, harnessing energy from the customers' cars movement to generate as much as 30kW of energy. The kinetic plates are supposed to pay for themselves in under two years. (Examiner; June 16, 2009)
