In the current scenario, population is increasing day by day therefore the demand of power is also increasing with it, The extensive usage of energy has resulted in reduction of conventional resources of power. Therefore, to overcome this problem we need to implement the technique which will not only overcome the energy crisis but also prevent the environment. Conventional resources like fossil fuels and nuclear energy requires careful handling and spoils the environment too. Hence the focus is now shifting towards the renewable resources of energy. This paper emphasizes on the idea that there is possibility of generating power by specially designed speed breaker. We can convert the energy which is being wasted everyday on the roads by the moving vehicles, into electricity and store it in the batteries. As we know, vehicles on road are increasing gradually with every passing day; this will help us to generate electricity as these vehicles pass through the speed breakers. This paper explains clearly, the working principle of the system, its practical implementation, output power calculation and its advantages. The energy we generate from speed breaker is enough for lighting street lights during night, by using this arrangement we can store a lot of power. The suggested model is an eco-friendly method for generating power i.e.; it does not consume any fuel.

Author Keywords: Energy crisis, conventional resources, power generation, speed breaker, vehicles, practical implementation, output power calculation, street lights.
