ABSTRACT
This article examines a new project that aims to harvest the energy from vibrations and human motion and convert it into useful electrical energy to power lighting systems in buildings, as of July 2006. Energy harvesting captures the ambient energy surrounding a system and either, transfers it to another location or transforms it into electrical energy to power other devices. The British government has promised to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 60 percent by the year 2050. Great Britain must produce 10 percent of its electrical supply from renewable-energy sources by 2010 to ensure that this is achieved.
