Electricity Generation through Road Ribs using law of Electromagnetic Induction
Recognizing the importance of developing renewable energy resources, the Highways Agency commissioned a preliminary scoping study in 2001 to explore available methods and assess the possibility of renewable energy generation being exploited within the highway network. Among the various means of transportation, highways cover the widest and in effect the greatest area of our precious landmass. In context of the present scenario, spaces required for energy generation are becoming scarce day by day, and yet paradoxically no substantial effort has been made to make use of the very spaces incorporated by the highways themselves. . The road rib can be designed so that any vehicle, from bicycle to HGV, pass across it and it generate electricity which is then stored at the road side in a battery then used to power any electrical roadside device.
