Solar Road Showboats Innovation, G20 Brisbane


Innovative Dutch leadership provides an outstanding model for all countries to go solar, protect our oceans and the environment.

The Dutch have masterfully engineered a solar-paneled bicycle path between two suburbs of Amsterdam.

The panels are designed to self-clean, thereby maximizing exposure to sunlight. They mimic the architecture of tree leaves. That is, the panels are tilted ever so slightly, allowing rain water to wash dirt off the solar bike path.

Each day, 2,000 cyclists use this bicycle-only corridor to commute to work.

This inspirational solar project officially opened for generating electricity on November 12.

These robust solar panels will generate enough electricity to run three houses each year. The second phase of this important project will extend the solar bike path producing electricity to power street lights, traffic signals and electric vehicle charging stations.

The Netherlands Organization of Applied Scientific Research believes that 20 percent of the Netherlands 87,000 miles of road could become solar-paneled roadways in the very near future.

A US-based project headed-up by Julie and Scott Brusaw called Solar Roadways reckons it’s possible for America to cut its fossil fuel emissions by 75 percent by adopting solar-paneled roadways.

It’s a timely solar-paneled roadway plan for the G20 meeting in Brisbane, Australia to consider because it provides a transition away from the current heat-trapping, carbon-polluting energies of gas and coal to solar industries, which will immediately create hundreds of thousands of jobs around the globe!
