Energy Floors partners with Russian Railway Research Institute

Energy Floors is happy to announce the confirmation of a five-year collaboration with the Russian Railway Research Institute. The goal of the partnership is to bring the Energy Floors technology to a level that is fit for large scale industrial applications.

Rotterdam based company Energy Floors, known for the development of the Sustainable Dance Floor, has teamed up with a high profile partner: The Russian Railway Research Institute (VNIIZHT).

The patented technology of Energy Floors which converts human movement into usable electricity was scouted by the VNIIZHT researchers in 2012. It had raised their interest as they were investigating new ways to turn movement into usable electricity.

After a first visit to their research institute in Moscow earlier this year, where each company presented their strategies, the intention to work together was spoken. This intention has now been formalized in a co-development collaboration that will span a period of at least 5 years.

During this period the companies will join forces, knowledge and energy to develop new products that can be implemented on a large scale in public and industrial locations.

Applying the Energy Floors technology in platforms and railway stations with high footfall is the first logical step in this project. For this purpose, a pilot installation will be installed in a VNIIZHT test location later this year, where the current technology will be tested under strict Russian conditions.

Next to that, other applications will be investigated such as using the energy of vehicles (trains / cars) as a source of energy.

The Energy Floors team is, obviously, very enthusiastic about the possibilities that this collaborations presents. Not only will a well-qualified team of researchers work on the development of our technology; the potential of installing energy floors in locations all over Russia makes us rush with positive energy. Hereby we can show once more: Energy is Everywhere!
