Pavegen: The Company that can't make energy out of crowds tries to make money out of them


This is in the same idiotic league as "look how much energy the country would save by unplugging all those phone chargers when they're not being used". It looks impressive in kWh but -- as McKay says -- adding a lot of minute numbers together still makes a tiny number compared to real energy usage.

Anybody proposing *anything* like this should be forced to read "Sustainable Energy -- Without the Hot Air" and pass an exam on the contents before they're allowed to spout technobabble on energy generation/consumption.
