What if our roads would harvest the energy from the sun, and convert it to electricity to power lighting, traffic systems, households and electric vehicles, transforming our road network into a huge source of renewable energy.
SolaRoad develops, produces and delivers solar pavements to build these roads.
In 2010 a public-private consortium with TNO, province of Noord-Holland, Ooms Civiel (now part of Strukton) and Imtech Traffic&Infra (now Dynniq) started the joint development of SolaRoad. Together they built the worlds first bike road with integrated solar panels in 2014, near Amsterdam. This 100 m pilot project was successful, and from 2017 follow-up projects were built in Blauwestad (NL), Haaksbergen (NL), and two locations in France. SolaRoad was incorporated in 2018, to boost commercialization and scale-up.
