SolaRoad is a new concept for the generation of sustainable energy. Here, the road surface also acts as a solar panel. The generated electrical energy can be used for various applications, such as road lighting and traffic systems. Households may benefit from it as well. In time, electric cars might possibly be able to make use of the energy. The energy will then actually be generated at the place where it is needed: this is a big step towards an energy-neutral mobility system.
