Solar panelled roads

Wouldn’t it be nice if our roads act like solar panels? And if we could drive our vehicles with the solar power generated by this? The Province of Noord-Holland, road construction company Ooms Civiel and technical service provider Dynniq accepted this challenge in 2009 and now form – together with TNO – the core consortium that is developing SolaRoad: the first road surface that absorbs sunlight and converts it into electricity. The ultimate goal is the realization of the dream that large parts of the road surface in the Netherlands will act as a large solar panel. The generated electricity can be used for street lighting, traffic systems, households and electric vehicles.
