ADVANTAGES

This form of energy generation offers a number of major advantages compared with a wind turbine:

  • In most cases there is already an electrical network in place near the road, which means there is very little need to lay new cables
  • There is no blighting of the landscape
  • There is no threat to birds
  • It does not cause any noise nuisance
  • It does not cause any shadows
  • Limited maintenance
  • Costs are approximately half of those for a wind turbine

Maintenance is performed under the road surface in a machine room, which houses the mechanism, the alternator and the gearbox. All of this is accessible via the transformer unit at the roadside. Consequently, in most cases traffic is not disrupted by maintenance activities. Other requirements will, of course, be imposed by the government authorities involved.
