Scania exploring solar-powered truck transport in Sweden (


"Scania is testing a hybrid truck with a solar-panel-covered trailer that uses the sun’s energy to help propel the vehicle during trials on public roads in Sweden.

The research project looks to determine how much emissions can be reduced using the lightweight solar panels. Researchers are also looking at how the truck can interact with the power grid, potentially selling surplus solar power."
