Technical Assessment of Energy Production Through Photovoltaic-Integrated Road Surfaces

  Logos of project participants

In Germany there are about 1.4 billion square meters of horizontal surfaces. These could be used to generate electricity. Within the scope of the project, the technical assessment of a concept for energy generation from traffic areas is based on a novel photovoltaic-integrated road concept.

The realization potential and the risk as well as the potential of the concept are to be assessed technically and economically. The system concept consists of several functional layers of different materials and materials that are combined with each other. The design of the upper glass cover layer is to be developed in a way that an optimum photovoltaic efficiency is made possible and at the same time all relevant transport and construction requirements are fulfilled.
