Holland uses two solar-powered bike lanes, perfect combination of clean energy and green travel

Shulou( Report--, December 19 (Xinhua) recently, two solar-powered bike lanes have been officially put into use in the Netherlands, and they are also the first bike lanes in the country with a solar-paved area of more than 1000 square meters.

The solar bike lanes, built by Wattway, a subsidiary of the Colas Group, and BAM Royal Group, a Dutch construction company, are located in the provinces of North Holland and North Brabant, respectively. Wattway claims to be the first company in the world to develop solar road technology, paving roads that can generate electricity while holding vehicles.

Founded in 2015, Wattway has carried out about 40 pilot projects in many countries and continues to improve its solar road technology. The efficiency of the completed Dutch project has been further improved, with a generating capacity of 148 watts per square meter, an increase of 29 watts over previous projects. The two bike lanes are expected to generate 160 MWh of renewable energy a year, providing clean electricity to the Dutch power grid. The project will be monitored and maintained over the next five years.

According to, the Wattway solar bike lane uses a new type of ultra-thin solid solar panels, which are only a few millimeters thick and affixed directly to the existing bike lane. Solar cells are wrapped in multi-layer resin and polymer substrates, which can not only let sunlight shine on the battery, but also withstand the pressure of cycling. It is worth mentioning that the surface of the solar panel is specially treated, and the friction force is the same as that of the traditional asphalt pavement, which ensures the safety of cycling.

The Netherlands has a network of more than 35000 km of bike lanes, and the use of these existing spaces to lay solar panels can avoid taking up valuable land to build large ground power stations and provide new ways for clean energy development.
