The Dutch innovation SolaRoad allows cities to grow and increase its transport networks in a green and climate-friendly way. In a joint initiative the province of Noord-Holland, research organization TNO, road construction company Ooms Civiel, and technical service provider Imtech Traffic&Infra develops a bicycle road that harvests sunlight and converts it into electricity. The electricity can be used by street lighting, households and charging stations for electric cars. The concept is gaining momentum across the globe, as illustrated by e.g. a work agreement with the California Energy Commission and the city of Cancun's consideration to implement this technology.
