Cycle Paths May Soon Provide Solar Power
The Netherlands ups the environmentally friendly ante by maximising cycle paths
We have previously witnessed how the US superhighway infrastructure could be modified to make better use of it’s latent solar capacity and now the Dutch Sola Road Project has decided to apply a similar principle to the cycle path network of the Province of North Holland.
Developed by Dutch innovation consultancy TNO, Solar Road consists of concrete panels with embedded thick crystalline silicon solar cells, covered by a toughened glass surface. Smart apps maximize energy retention during peak sunlight times and efficiently store it during low-light periods.
To move beyond novelty activations and one-time gimmicks, PSFK equips marketers with the insights, templates and analytics to develop high-reach campaigns that meet consumers in the moment, collect and build upon experiential data, and build scale through content creation.
