Trials have begun in France for the first solar panel roads. Could we one day see our motorways power the UK energy needs? 

The government also recently announced phasing out of petrol and diesel cars, meaning that electric cars will need to step up. 

The main issues at the moment with electric cars are the limited range of a single battery charge, availability other charging points and that longer journeys will require lengthy recharge.

Could we also see the solar panel roads combined with charging your electric car as you drive on the motorways?
