Solar-Powered PHEV Truck Prototype Examines Solar Harvesting On the Road

A research collaboration between Uppsala University, Eksjo Maskin & Truck, Midsummer, Ernsts Express, Dalakraft, and Scania is proofing how much solar energy can be captured by a moving semi-truck. New lightweight solar panels were fitted to a trailer and are being pulled by a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) tractor. The goal is to see how much fuel can be saved and how real-world usable this technology might be.
