TBEA SUNOASIS Co., Ltd. - the design institute and energy company has successfully completed the planning scheme of the first "PV + highway" full-scene typical application demonstration project in China. The project is located in a service area along a highway, with a total planned capacity of 3.5 MW.

It is planned to operate in a self-generation and self-consumption mode, allowing it to meet the regular electricity demand of infrastructure in the service area. When completed, it will be able to produce 4200MWh of electricity per year, saving 1377.6t of standard coal per year (based on an average standard coal consumption of 320g/kWh) when compared to thermal power of the same capacity.

As per the company’s report, with the goal of "peak carbon dioxide emissions" and "carbon neutrality", the PV industry has ushered in new development opportunities and challenges. By 2020, China's highway mileage has exceeded 150,000 kilometers. With the advent of the era of "5G + intelligent transportation" and the innovation of electric vehicles, intelligent charging piles, driverless technology in the field of transportation, the annual power consumption of the highway system will increase significantly.

The project is a successful alternative for the power grid's single power supply structure in remote areas of the highway system, and it would be the most cost-effective way to complement power supply in local service areas.

TBEA Sunoasis, in its statement said, “After completion, the project will be one of the most advanced and perfect "PV + transportation" projects along the highway, if not the entire highway system in China, and will serve as a significant demonstration project that will help promote the integration of PV power generation technology and transportation infrastructures.”

PV + Highway is intended to integrate PV power generation technology with the highway system, to use the highways, shoulders, ramps, isolation zones and other own space in the highway system, as well as the space of building roofs, parking sheds, walls and other facilities in service area for arrangement and installation of PV power generation system.
