System to capture energy from moving vehicles
The Road Power system captures the kinetic energy from moving automobiles. It can be installed in locations such as entrance roads, private roadways, or on the pavement of a parking lot. Approximately 50% of the kinetic energy of every passing vehicle which decelerates by braking is lost. This system can eliminate this loss by recovering this energy and converting it to electricity. The recovered energy is then utilized for purposes including energy storage, electric vehicle charging, facility power, and smart parking lots.
Direct from manufacturer
Winds of change use the kinetic energy of passing vehicles in traffic to generate clean energy using a wind turbine. A similar concept but a different technological approach.
Goal 7: Affordable and clean energy
Commercial and industrial users, public facility owners.

The size of this system
The system generates sustainable electricity which can be stored and then used for other applications. The units recover the kinetic energy when a vehicle decelerates when the driver has applied brakes. The recovered energy can be supplied to the local grid, or even be used by any neighboring buildings or to charge electric vehicles.
