Pavegen energy harvesting slabs


Pavegen is a flexible paving slab that harnesses energy from the kinetic energy of people walking. Energy is


generated everytime a footstep hits the slab. Where there is a high footfall, energy is harvested to power a variety of low energy applications. Five per cent of the energy generated by each footstep is used to illuminate the slab, and the rest can be output into different applications such as low energy lighting and signage. The system has already been installed at a school in Canterbury.

ILP and IALD Memorandum of Understanding


The International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) and the Institution of Lighting Professionals (ILP) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) at the ARC Show in January 2011 to work cooperatively towards developing the architectural lighting design profession and elevating awareness of quality lighting. The MOU emphasises the need to demonstrate cooperative collaboration within the lighting profession. IALD's collaboration with ILP further strengthen its commitment to developing innovative programs in support of the lighting design industry and its practitioners. The MOU highlights five key areas on which the IALD and the ILP will collaborate: 1. Collaboration on international, national and regional events that are appropriate to the aims of both organisations; 2. Developing training courses jointly, or with the support of each organisation and making those courses available to the members of both organisations; 3. Collaboration and consultation on the development, promotion and support of technical, advisory and information publications of both organisations; 4. Dissemination and sharing of technical and design information among the members of both organisations; 5. Promoting lighting as a career to young people and supporting young lighting professionals.
