They convert vibrations into electrical energy. So the vibrations of cars will produce electricity which can either feed into the grid or be routed directly to homes and other facilities.

Basic principle for the piezoelectric accelerometer?

Piezoelectric is natural, as acceleration is directly proportional to force. In a piezoelectric accelerometer, charge accumulates on the crystal and is translated and amplified into either an output current or voltage, so this only respond to AC phenomenon such as vibration or shock.

How can you convert sound energy into electrical power which can be stored for using later?

You can use a piezoelectric device. Piezoelectric devices are commonly used to convert back and forth between mechanical and electrical energy. Examples include cheap electrical buzzers and cigarette lighters (those that create a spark to light the butane). To efficiently use a piezoelectric device you must devise an acoustic amplifier to increase the pressure on the surface of the piezoelectric as much as possible, and then efficiently store the piezoelectric power via diodes (and other marvelous circuit elements) into a capacitor.
