RoadPower enables commercial and industrial facilities to offset a significant portion of their energy expenditures by utilizing onsite vehicle traffic to generate clean, grid-grade electricity. RoadPower is easily integrated into the roadway or parking lot of a facility and generates energy with each passing vehicle.
Energy usage in the US is dominated by commercial and industrial facility power consumption and road transportation. Many of these properties require somewhere between 50 - 100kWh of electricity per square foot every year making energy costs one of the largest expenses for commercial & industrial facilities. And what about transportation? Vehicles in motion possess incredible levels of kinetic energy. The larger and faster a vehicle is moving, the more energy it contains. So what if we can collect the live energy from moving vehicles, and use it to offset the power requirements of surrounding buildings? This question spawned the development of RoadPower which proves we can do exactly that. Through a system built into the roadway, RoadPower captures vehicular kinetic energy and uses it to produce clean grid-grade power. The energy produced is transferred to the facility to power its equipment, and reduce operating costs. RoadPower puts an interesting spin on the ‘vehicle-to-grid’ category.
