The Netherlands last week unveiled the world's first solar bike path, a revolutionary project to harvest the sun's energy that could eventually also be used on roads.Electric bikes and cars will one day be able to refuel using contactless charging directly from the road or bike path, said Sten de Wit, a Dutch physicist who helped develop the project.The SolaRoad will be tested over the next two years on a path that carries around 2,000 cyclists a day, De Wit said.The aim is to have the solar road commercially available on Dutch roads within the next five years as the number of electrically powered cars and bicycles grows.
