Solar bike paths go online in Netherlands

Two new solar bike paths have been completed in the Netherlands as part of an initiative by Rijkswaterstaat. These paths, located in North Brabant and North Holland, cover 1,000 square meters each and are equipped with photovoltaic modules with 21% efficiency. Constructed by Colas from France and BAM Royal Group from the Netherlands, the paths are expected to generate 160 MWh/year of renewable energy in their first year. This initiative was launched in 2018 by Rijkswaterstaat, a part of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment.

                  The completion of two solar bike paths in the Netherlands marks a sustainable innovation in infrastructure. Spanning 1,000 square meters each in North Brabant and North Holland, these paths are equipped with highly efficient photovoltaic modules (21% efficiency). Constructed by Colas from France and BAM Royal Group from the Netherlands, these solar bike paths are anticipated to generate 160 MWh/year of renewable energy in their inaugural year. Initiated in 2018 by Rijkswaterstaat, a part of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, this project showcases a commendable effort to integrate clean energy generation into everyday transportation infrastructure, contributing to the fight against climate change.

                        Such innovation gives us hope... If the rest of the world borrows this concept from the Netherlands the planet will be a clean and better place to live in... This shows that renewable energy is so convenient and can be produced from things we use on a daily basis, it doesn't have to be complex

                            Good news we need other countries to visit Netherland and see on how the use of new technology and innovation have achieved on the use of solar panels bike which is climate friendly 💪

                              @rotich_kim I second this point, benchmarking Netherlands will be beneficial as it will impart others with the knowledge and skills necessary to match their innovations... I would also encourage the Netherlands to be kind enough and share their knowledge and technology with the world.
