Abstract:
    Energy harvesting from vehicular movement using Piezoelectric Nano-generators in pavements. Pakistan is rich in transportation,thus we have a very good and rich potential to generate electricity.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Energy shortages is the unmet need in society that we will definitely fulfill. Pakistan is suffering from energy shortages i.e Electricity since last decade. Government is working to enhance generation but by the use of traditional means. Our focus is to add to energy sector by sustainable means
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Pakistan as a Nation needs it. We all will be benefited by the extensive generation of electricity.This would also help us to eradicate energy shortages from society. Most benefactors are industries, agriculture, local citizens and WAPDA as well.
How will the solution works
    Our idea is to place PZT sensors in pavement design. These sensors will be placed almost at all busy thoroughfare. Electricity is generated by the stress/load of vehicles. As vehicles moves on this sensor, it deforms and causes charges to move. Due to movement of charges, flow of electrons takes place and thus electricity is generated. In simple words Kinetic energy of vehicles is converted into electrical energy by the use of material named as Piezoelectric.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    This is a new idea. Renewable energy sources are somehow our competitor but in those sources energy is converted from one form to another. We are not focusing on changing the form of energy, rather we are focusing on capturing the vehicular kinetic energy which would otherwise be wasted.
