Roads as Renewable energy source

A photovoltaic guardrail will be located along the on-service highway A4 connecting Torino to Trieste, in northern Italy, in the area interested by the service area of A4 Sebino km. 197+500, where a total of 100 m of guardrail will be installed.

As the energy production depends on several physical parameters, the location of the on-site pilot must be representative of the average, if not extreme conditions and will keep into account factors i.e., latitude, solar radiation, ambient temperature, inclination of the barrier and orientation of the highway. Other aspects considered are traffic and safety conditions and elements/utilities to be powered.
