Received Date: Dec 31, 2015 / Accepted Date: Mar 22, 2016 / Published Date: Mar 25, 2016
This article aims to assess the functionality of piezoelectricity in roads to utilise energy executed from the moving vehicles. The energy is converted into electrical energy using piezoelectric technology to replace fossil fuel in streetlight applications. The vitality of this technology arises as fossil fuels is being over consumed which makes it challenging to provide sufficient power in the next era as an effect of growing population. Being dependent on renewable energy to account for a greater global consumption level is essential to overcome the risks associated with fossil fuels. Piezoelectric road is a new energy evolution to provide a sustainable solution in terms of environment, economy, and social needs.
