Abstract: Due to the advancement in technology as well as exponential increase in population, the energy demand is increasing rapidly. This increasing energy demand is met by non-renewable energy resources which will soon deplete the fossilized vestige. Furthermore, burning of fossil fuels leads to the emission of harmful greenhouse gases causing global warming which is a matter of serious concern. This swings us to opt for alternative energy sources which would minimize the environmental hazards. The enormous human population is an increasing commodity which can be used to harness energy for the betterment of human race. One of the alternatives can be through footstep. The waste energy of footstep power with human locomotion can be harnessed and utilized in numerous applications. This paper sheds light on generation of electrical energy through footstep.
