We are all used to streetlights, but they do consume energy. If the glow-in-the-dark road markings in the Netherlands turn out to be a success, we may not need as many streetlights in the future. The paint contains a power that charges up during the day and glows at night. The paint can glow for up to 8 hours in the dark.
We are going to have much smarter roads in the future. For now, we will have to wait to see how this pilot project turns out.
