“Jumping-Power Plant” is one of the projects that Hope Step Japan! (HSJ) initiates. It’s a group of Japanese scientists, engineers and creators in the Netherlands who have been working seriously in order to realize the dream of generating electricity by jumping.
The idea was born some decades ago, when the team leader Moyuru Watanabe was a small girl, hearing adults concerns about the nuclear power plant in her neighbourhood. The idea of generating power by jumping instead of nuclear power passed through her mind. When the disaster struck in 2011 in Japan she suddenly remembered the idea and started to think seriously about how to make it work.
Last year we presented our idea of generating electricity by jumping at HSJ. Since then we exchanged our ideas and experimented several times. Last November we successfully created the prototype of the “Jumping-Power Plant “
On 8 March 2015, we are happy to offer you the experience of lighting LEDs by jumping. Please join us and also jump with us!
We are aiming to raise awareness in innovative technology by generating energy that contributes to a safer and sustainable society. We hope our Jumping Power Plant demonstration gives you a chance to have fun and learn about the latest technology.
