Abstract—The ever-increasing energy demands of today’s
rapidly emerging world economies, has placed energy use and
conservation at the heart of the world sustainability challenge.
Consequently, a lot of focus and research is aimed at the
implementation of the various sustainable strategies and models,
to address the global sustainability challenges in energy use and
its conservation. This paper presents an overview of an
approach considered to meet this global sustainability challenge
by Ahmadi Sports Ground, which is considered as one of the
masterpieces of Ahmadi Township, developed by the Kuwait
Oil Company (KOC).
The paper introduces the specific application of using energy generating tiles through energy harvesters in the Ahmadi Sports Ground. For a good comprehension, the paper takes the elementary materials scientific development from their history and mentions the actual acknowledgement and energy generation mechanism of those materials throughout concurrent researches.
Index Terms—Harvest, nano generator pavements, piezoelectric, renewable energy, smart.
