Harnessing abundant but inaccessible energy from unlikely sources may soon be as simple as taking a walk in the park. Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have developed a new method of harvesting kinetic energy from human locomotion. “Human walking carries a lot of energy,” says Tom Krupenkin, researcher and UW Professor of Mechanical Engineering. “Theoretical estimates show that it can produce up to 10 watts per shoe, and that energy is just wasted as heat. A total of 20 watts from walking is not a small thing, especially compared to the power requirements of the majority of modern mobile devices.” The energy harvesting shoe could prove a simple but effective lifeline in remote ares where power access is limited or nonexistent .
