The Netherlands has the world’s first solar-powered bike lane
The project called SolaRoad is the result of a collaboration between the government, private sector, and academia. The first part of the path was opened in 2015. Its length is just 100 m, but this is a huge breakthrough in the construction of the roads of the future. The main idea of this project is that solar power from the road is used for lighting the streets and charging electric vehicles.
