The roads learn to generate energy as well. Germany has the first bicycle lane from solar panels. A small section of just 90 meters long can provide four families with the energy for a whole year! Each square meter generates 100 kWh of electricity per year. The coating is rubber and non-slip, during winter it is heated. Each tile is a solar battery. On the surface the voltage is small – 30 W max to avoid the risks.
The development of this technology required €100,000. Now mass production is planned.
