Innovation harnessing the energy of soccer players

In one of Rio de Janeiro's favelas, called Morro da Mineira, Shell is lighting up the community's soccer field by using both solar panels and kinetic tiles invented by Laurence Kemball-Cook - CEO of Pavegen. The weight of a player's footstep is transformed into energy within the kinetic tiles: innovation harnessing the energy of the beautiful game. I love the concept and it speaks so well about Shell's sustainable energy initiative.

 How cool is that?
