Israels Apollo Power says Amazon to try out its solar-powered sidewalk – Reuters

JERUSALEM, Feb 13 (Reuters) – Israels Apollo Power (APLP.TA) stated on Sunday that Amazon will try its lightweight and versatile solar energy technology on a roof and sidewalk at a logistics website in France.
The 750,000 euro ($ 851,175) order comes as Amazon aims to power its operations with 100% renewable resource by 2025. Part of that push, Apollo stated, is to install solar energy systems on other big buildings at Amazon that are unable to support more frequently used solar panels.
Apollos flexible solar energy films are made for surface areas such as on aircraft or cars and will also be tested in area, the business states.

The 50-square-metre sidewalk on the approach to the French warehouses will generate solar power while individuals walk and bike on it, Apollo said.
Apollo said in a regulative filing it expects the project to be finished by the end of the year, though there was no assurance it will be successful or that Apollos system will be installed at other Amazon sites.
Apollo said it is already teaming up with Audi and Volkswagen for bringing solar innovation to automobiles.
Amazon did not right away return an ask for comment.
