Climate change is a pressing environmental problem cars play an integral role in, which is why sustainable transportation solutions are paramount. Trend Hunter's Michael Hemsworth explores this further with the concept of solar infrastructure.

Solar panels provide a promising method of energy generation that is more sustainable than fossil fuel. This is why many car companies are using them as a part of their sustainable transportation solutions. While it's wonderful electric vehicles are becoming more mainstream, it also presents a new issue of charging cars. This is where solar-powered parking spots come in. BMW is also developing futuristic solar-paneled garages where drivers can power up at home. An acclimatizing infrastructure means making room for car charging stations, which are essentially electric gas stations. On the other hand, some automobile makers are just putting solar panels right on the vehicles themselves. Stats for Solar Infrastructure Trending: Older & Average
