Urban Greening Grant Proposal- Heat Energy via Septa

Urban Greening Grant Proposal- Heat Energy via Septa

For our Green proposal we wanted to address the issue of an alternative energy. We wanted to take advantage of crowded train stations and use the excess body heat as an energy source. This energy is usually lost, but could potentially rescue the cost of heating buildings during winter, which is one of the most expensive utilities of a building. With less demand on using conventional heating system, we would reduce the carbon foot print benefiting the overall health of the environment.  A busy train station is a constant source of energy, with thousands of people passing by each day.  The flow of people is larger on weekdays, when the buildings need to be heated the most. This new system of energy conservation would benefit Philadelphia, as well as help Septa meet conservation goals of 2015
