The municipality of Haaksbergen has the ambition to develop Stepelerveld into the greenest industrial area in The Netherlands. Only sustainable products are used to build the infrastructure in the area. SolaRoad is one of the sustainable applications in this development. A SolaRoad kit powers the public lighting in the area.

  • Powers ‘STOPcontact’, a stand-alone system with a battery and a charging point for e-bikes, phones and tablets.

The STOPcontact is a multi-functional bench, constructed from a number of smart and green products. The bench has four sockets to charge e.g. electric bikes, phones, or tablets. The electricity is generated by a SolaRoad kit in the bike road along the bench. The electricity generated by SolaRoad can be stored in a number of batteries next to the bench. STOPcontact is an example how the province of Groningen stimulates the use of innovative, clean and safe energy sources.


Nantes Saint-Nazaire Port and Etampes (FR)

  • Realisation 2017
  • Contractor: Charier
  • Type of road: bike road
  • Total length: 15m
  • Electricity is used for public lighting

The French village Etampes, near Paris, has a bike road with a SolaRoad section to power the pubic lighting along the road. The bike road is located in a rocky area where ground works are expensive. The application of SolaRoad offers the possibility to locally and robustly generate electricity for the public lighting, while avoiding a costly grid connection. In La Clarté two SolaRoad-elements have been applied, which power the lighting of a roundabout.

  • Road authority: Province of Noord-Holland
  • Contractor: Strukton Civiel
  • Type of road: bike road
  • Length: 90m
  • Electricity is delivered to the grid

The SolaRoad pilot project in the bike road next to the N203 in Krommenie was opened in 2014. The world’s first public road with integrated solar cells. The SolaRoad section is 90 meter long and 1,7 meter wide. During the pilot multiple versions of the solar pavement have been applied and tested, to test different coating technologies, solar module designs and cell types.
