World, as it seems beautiful is continuously depleting itself by the inappreciable efforts of the HOMO SAPIENS (i.e, human beings). The never ending needs of our Community leads to the endless consumption of non-renewable resources of energy which results in ruining the nature as we know existing around us. We, the human beings just focus on fulfilling our needs, overlooking its consequences. The rapid consumption of the non-renewable resources of energy leads to global warming which is one of the biggest threat to human existence. Likewise, there are many other dangerous consequences of the same. For e.g as in case of economical consequence, the depletion of oil resources is leading to the steep rise of its price. Because of this, a constant threat of invasion of Gulf countries like Saudi Arabia etc by the superpowers is emerging. Iraq, for example has already faced the ruthlessness of United States of America in 2003. So to save the World from extinction, the brilliant minds are constantly focusing on methods harnessing clean energy or we can say Green energy.
Now the question arises- What is GREEN ENERGY?
The form of energy whose production as well as whose usage does not bring any kind of harm to the nature is a type of green energy. Green energy is alternative energy which must be a renewable source of energy.Many methods has been discovered so far for producing Green energy. Some examples are Solar, Geothermal, Wind, Hydroelectric, Biomass etc.
Why Shout_Loud and Step_Up?
The title here signifies the type of procedure for producing Green energy which we will be discussing here and which involves shouting and walking or running.
There is a law in the world of science which is known as the Conservation of Energy law. This law states that energy can neither be created nor be destroyed, but it can be converted from one form to another form of energy. This law just paved the path for finding the way of harnessing green energy.
We know that the electrical requirement of the stadiums which holds sports matches is very high. Stadiums have audiences/crowd. Crowd make sounds (a lot of it). Sound is a form of energy. Then according to the law of conservation of energy, the sound energy can be converted into electrical energy. With the help of proper research, it is possible to make such an instrument which can give the functionality of converting sound energy to electrical energy. Thus basic requirement of such stadiums can be fulfilled. Thus we can see that the huge crowd coming to watch a cricket, football or any other game can invariably contribute to the production of green energy.
Another source of Green energy can be the traffic on the streets. Now the question is how?
The adverse condition of the traffic in the populated cities is known to everyone. And known is the fact that the noise produced by the traffic is an intolerable one. But this problem can be transform into a solution to a different problem. Like the sound produced by the crowd of a stadium, the noise(of horns and others) can act as a source of energy. It is possible to install a proper device at every busy traffic signal. This device will have the same functionality as the device mentioned in case of the stadium. The noises which on the other hand is intolerable will be store and converted into electrical energy.I assume that this production will be huge as the noises are immense.
Do you know that the famous Howrah Station serves more than 1 million passengers each day? And the electrical requirement for such a station is also huge.
Now the question arises is how can we utilize the crowd to produce electricity?
The answer to this question is with our Footsteps. It is possible to make a circuit which uses the dynamo technology to collect the kinetic energy produced by walking over the tile.The circuit will be beneath the tiles. Thus kinetic energy can be converted to electrical energy (law of Conservation of energy). The Pavegan tiles invented by the director of the UK company, Pavegan Systems uses this kind of technology.
The Pavegan tiles made by them uses materials that can be recycled. They have been able to install these tiles in some European stations . Every time a passer steps over these tiles, 5% of energy is contributed to light up the tiles to make him realize his share. The rest is used to light the street lamps and digital displays.
This system can be introduced to Disco pubs also, where the clubbers would not only enjoy but also dedicate some of their enjoyment in producing Green energy by dancing over the floor tiles which would convert their kinetic energy to electrical energy.
Same goes with the side-walks. If the side-walks are installed with these tiles, then the street lamps over the side-walks can be light up by implementing the above mentioned phenomena.
The above mentioned methods of producing energy are definitely eco-friendly as implementing these methods does not involve producing any harmful gases or any other events that is harmful to the environment .Thus, it seems that these concepts, if introduced all around the world can lead to the production of huge amount of energy which doesn’t involve polluting the environment. No smoke, no pollution. Just pure Green energy.
It is well understood that implementing these methods initially requires huge financial involvement all around. But once installed, it could unimaginably lead to success. We already know that the UK based company, Pavegan Systems has managed to pull it out by installing their device in some of the areas of European countries. Thus it is proven that it is possible to implement such ideas under proper jurisdiction. These steps can only be made possible if the big democracies and the republics of the world like India, China,USA, Russia and others instigate this realization among them that “Preserving environment can only lead to survival”.
