    Netherlands Is The 1st Country To Open A Solar Road For Public Use

    The world’s first solar bike lane is soon to be available for use in the Netherlands! The bike path that connects the Amsterdam suburbs of Krommenie and Wormerveer is a 70-meter stretch of solar-powered roadway set to open for the public on November 12th, 2014.

    The new solar road, which costs €3m (AUD$4.3m), was created as the first step in a project that the local government hopes will see the path being extended to 100 metres by 2016.

    More complimentary plans are also on the table as the country intends to power everything from traffic lights to electric cars using solar panels.

    Thank you for finding that out, mudra. Thubs Up I wasn't aware of this, for Holland has been
    putting solar and wind energy on the shelf for a too long time.
    I love the idea of riding my bicycle knowing that the sun-energy is stored in the road.
    It's a whole different experience that way sunny sunny
    How's Belgium doing storing solar energy?

    Well according to wikipedia here is where we stand in Belgium as regard solar energy


    Solar power in Belgium had been growing at an outstanding pace from 2009 until 2012, but has since declined significantly. In 2012 the installed capacity expanded to over 2.6 GWp , nearly all of it grid connected. Photovoltaics produced an estimated 2115 GWh of electricity in 2012 in Belgium.[1]
    In the afternoon of March 20, 2014, a new record of peak electricity generation had been achieved. According to the power supplier Eneco Energie , more than two gigawatt (GW) of electric power, corresponding to two full-sized nuclear power plants, were generated by solar PV and supplied more than 20 percent of the overall electricity consumption at the time.
