Soon after the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) planned to utilize kinetic energy from trains’ braking for its energy needs, the innovation has succeeded in inspiring like-minded folks in Paris within no time. Here a building will harness body heat of riders and fast moving trains at a Metro station nearby to heat its 17 apartments while bringing down carbon emission by one third at least.

The project developers will use a stairwell, which connects the building to the Metro Station, as a heat conduit. However, the stand-alone project requires a rigorous brainstorming to move beyond a single building.
