Solar Roadways: een weg met ingebouwde Solar Road Panels

Solar Roadways-prototypeGeweldig. Ja, het kan in principe natuurlijk allemaal. Technisch zijn de mogelijkheden welhaast onbegrensd, maar of dit nou echt de oplossing wordt voor de toekomst? Lijkt mij in elk geval erg duur.

 Het Amerikaanse ministerie van Transportation ziet het in elk geval al een beetje zitten en verstrekte $100.000 om het eerste prototype Solar Road Panel te ontwikkelen, inclusief ingebouwde LED-verlichting. In het filmpje geeft Scott Brusaw even een toelichting.

    Solar Roads Double As Power Grid

    Solar Roadways is the brain child of Scott Brusaw of Sacramento, CA. Replacing traditional petroleum-based asphalt roads, parking lots and driveways with structurally-engineered solar panels that can withstand the weight and impact of moving vehicles. The solar panels reduce the need for petroleum while providing energy for nearby residencies and businesses. The larger goal is to reduce or eradicate the need for fossil fuels through the use solar roadways to meet energy demands for the US, creating a decentralized power grid. Beyond solar power collection, the roadways also function as an intelligent data transfer system, connecting any areas connected by a series of Solar Road Panels.

    Brusaw imagines roadways across the US interconnected through Solar Road Panels, allowing the West Coast to power the East Coast in the final hours of the day or the East Coast to power the West Coast in the early morning. All electric vehicles would have easily accessible charging stations all along these powered roads, encouraging the predominant use of electric vehicles over internal combustion engines.

    Each panel has three basic layers:

    Road Surface Layer – Translucent and high-strength, it is rough enough to provide great traction, yet still passes sunlight through to the solar collector cells embedded within, along with LEDs and a heating element. It is capable of handling today’s heaviest loads under the worst of conditions. Weatherproof, it protects the electronics layer beneath it.

    Electronics Layer – Contains a microprocessor board with support circuitry for sensing loads on the surface and controlling a heating element. No more snow/ice removal and no more school/business closings due to inclement weather. The on-board microprocessor controls lighting, communications, monitoring, etc. With a communications device every 12 feet, the Solar Roadway is an intelligent highway system.

    Base Plate LayerLayer – While the electronics layer collects energy from the sun, it is the base plate layer that distributes power (collected from the electronics layer) and data signals (phone, TV, internet, etc.) “downline” to all homes and businesses connected to the Solar Roadway. Weatherproof, it protects the electronics layer above it. Sources: Crisp Green and Solar Roadways
