The green bridge (solar + wind)

03/02/2011
Considering that bridges are very exposed to the elements, Italian designers elaborated a concept for the Solar Park South challenge organized by the region of Calabria.

The designers of the "Solar Wind" bridge won the second place of the challenge with this very interesting and conceivable project. The team “Coffice” is composed by three Italians: Francesco Colarossi, Giovanna Saracino and Luisa Saracino.


The bridge has photovoltaic cells inserted into the surface of the road and wind turbines integrated in the structure.
On base of a 20km road and with 26 wind turbines the bridge can produce in one year respectively 11 and 36 millions of kWh. 


By combining solar and wind energy, power is produced continuously.
