The world is covered in more than 40m miles of road networks. What if this network could act like solar panels, and what if we could power our vehicles with the energy generated by this?

SolaRoad is a joint effort of TNO, The province of Noord-Holland, and two industrial partners Ooms Civiel and Dynniq
