Electro-Kinetic Road Ramp

Dorset inventor Peter Hughes' Electro-Kinetic Road Ramp generates around 10kW of power each time a car drives over its metal plates.

"The ramp is silent, comfortable and safe for vehicles," Mr Hughes said.

Depending on the weight of the vehicle passing overhead, between five and 50kW can be generated.
