Roadway Wind-Solar Hybrid Power Generation and Distribution System Towards Energy-Plus Roadways

The aim of this project is to develop a novel Roadway Wind/Solar Hybrid Power Generation and Distribution System (RHPS) towards energy-plus roadways, where energy-plus stands for annual energy consumption that is less than production. The RHPS would be a low footprint, intelligent, and multilayer power system designed for integration into urban and suburban areas, which reduces the need for new distribution networks. The RHPS represents a dramatic change in the role of the public right-of-way from an energy consumer to an energy producer, and therefore will aid in reducing transportation system operating costs.
