The world is covered in more than 40m miles of road networks. What if this network could act like solar panels, and what if we could power our vehicles with the energy generated by this? In 2009, these questions formed the beginning of a vision for the future for Sten De Wit at the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research in Delft, whose ideas are being put into practice with SolaRoad.
SolaRoad is a joint effort of TNO, The province of Noord-Holland, and two industrial partners Ooms Civiel and Dynniq
We teamed up with our friends at Banyak Films, who produced the film. It was directed by Katharine Round, cinematography by Alfredo De Juan and editing by Katie Bryer.
