Abstract

Electricity has now become a basic requirement for all humans. Electricity is used in almost every situation. Without electricity, we would perish. Electricity is employed in everyday life, industries, and transportation, among other things. So, by merely walking on the footstep, we are creating electrical power using renewable energy. Because non-renewable energy is scarce, renewable energy is in high demand these days. This paper discusses the process of generating mechanical energy from human footsteps and transferring it to electrical energy using a piezoelectric transducer. This type of generation falls under the Energy scavenging category of renewable resources, and it involves capturing and converting waste energy produced by routine activities, such as heat produced by exothermic reactions. There is a need to find alternative energy sources when the availability of traditional energy decreases. Almost all of our country’s state electricity bureaus are unable to supply power in accordance with demand. The energy provided by these enterprises is insufficient even for residential utilities; in such a dire situation, diverting energy for other public requirements is extremely challenging.
