'Paving the Way' with M&S Energy
Amery Hill School has been shortlisted by M&S Energy following our grant application to the M&S Community Energy Fund. The Fund supports renewable energy projects which can demonstrate they have support of their local community. We applied to the M&S Energy Fund for a grant to help deliver our ‘Paving the Way’ renewable energy project. Please help us secure this funding by voting for our project on the link below. The more votes we have, the better chance we have of ‘Paving the Way’!
Our installation project will consist of 24 ‘Pavegen’ floor tiles, covering 10-20 metres of the ICT corridor which will generate electricity from footsteps. The installation is designed to encourage students and staff to engage with a tangible, renewable energy solution. It will help them recognise the opportunities for an innovative off-grid energy technology within high footfall areas, regardless of the weather. The energy harnessed and converted from student and staff footsteps using the ‘Pavegen’ tiles is an innovative and effective renewable energy source. Not only does the system harvest energy but the tiles are fitted with wireless technology which will provide detailed real-time feedback on the power generated. The energy harvested can be used to power low-voltage local applications and we plan to use this to light the ICT corridor.
The vote is now closed and we have to wait until 30th October for results
