Solar Roads only 3 times more expensive than bitumen?

When they put it like that, and local councils could get funded by building them… I’m just hoping some form of super-battery arrives in time to enable a renewable world! Just imagine roads pumping electricity into the grid… or even transmitting electricity into car batteries sitting at the traffic lights! (Given that we can now transmit electricity through the air).

Again, it all depends on cost and reliability of supply. I’m still a nuclear advocate.
