Kinetic Energy @ Unley

I was fascinated to read about a soccer pitch in Rio Brazil that has lights powered by the kinetic energy generated by players during games.
An incredible use of emerging technology!
The soccer pitch has 200 weatherproof tiles made from 80% recycled materials installed beneath the new pitch to capture the players’ kinetic energy during games. This energy provides 100% of the power to the lights.
Perhaps we could consider this energy source to power the lights at Unley and Goodwood Ovals. Perhaps we could incorporate the tiles into board-walks used at community events in the parks. There are endless possibilities. It’s worth a review.
Here’s a link to the news story.
