Abstract

Planphoria will research, define and develp methods to turn our nation's roadways into a giant energy collection and transference system that produces low cost electrical energy close to point of use.  Though roadway environmental conditions change, and different roadway requirements vastly differ from the requirements of other roadways, we will determine the feasibility of this concept by leading and managing a Research and Development effort to determine how roadways may be improved using photo-voltaic, and piezoelectric paving methods and electricity generation using thermal differential engines.  Planphoria believes that these methods can be integrated into new and exisiting roadway systems (independently or collectively) as environmental conditions dictate, to produce a substantial electrical current.
