English Market Produces Energy With Kinetic Plates

Johnathan Martinez writes “Sainsbury’s market in England has installed ‘kinetic energy’ plates in the parking lot of its store in Gloucester. The plates are an experiment with a newer energy producing technology. The plates create as much as 30 kWh of energy as cars drive over them. The weight of the cars puts pressure on the plates creating kinetic energy to run a generator. The current is used to power the store and will lower the energy consumption of the market.”
