The most advanced technology, called lybra, is a tyre. -
Like rubber paving, it is used to convert kinetic energy generated by vehicles into electrical energy.
It began in Italy. -
"Underground Power" was established in February 2011.
It is a device 10 centimeters high, 3 meters wide and 1 meter long.
Scientists suggest that lybra can be installed in all kinds of deceleration places - traffic lights, sidewalks, roundabouts and parking lots.
Andrea Pirisi, CEO of the company, told Eurovision News: "What we are proposing is an innovative intelligent system that recycles and absorbs energy from cars by slowing down speed, improving road safety and using the energy dispersed by brakes. "
Lybra is developed in cooperation with Milan Polytechnic University. Its working principle is that the brake consumes kinetic energy. The edge-
Conversely, cutting technology can collect, convert these energy into electricity and transmit it to the grid.
In addition to improving road safety, the device also upgrades and promotes road traffic sustainability.
A test belt was set up in Milan this summer, and Silvio Doni, the company's technical director, said, "Even under the most critical conditions, the system is completely safe" because it is made of materials capable of withstanding 60 tons of load.
According to the team of engineers, 10 equipment chains at a fairly busy roundabout can generate 100,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year.
By contrast, the same amount of energy is produced by 19 tons of oil - enough to meet the annual electricity demand of about 40 households.
