A photovoltaic transport network

As the transport system is one of the major producers of carbon and users of fuels it is a natural candidate for taking action. So how shall we do it?

We've all seen the road signs and parking meters that run from a solar panel, but that's only scratching the surface.

What about gantries that run alongside the motorways, railways or the length of a runway? A ten foot wide panel along the length of the M1 will produce megawatts of electricity. The landscaped area inside intersections can have an array and the the service stations can have photovoltaic trees that provide shade for picnics.

There are no boundaries to how we apply our ideas to the technology.
