It's widely accepted that solar energy is one of the best and most eco-friendly forms of clean energy around, and Hungarian startup Platio is bidding to make it easier than ever for this energy to be harvested even in urban areas, with the introduction of a special solar panel that can be integrated into street furniture.

The Platio panel is more than capable of being attached to everything from pedestrian pathways to street furniture such as benches, as well as public seating in shopping malls and other outdoor areas.

What's great about the introduction of this solar-powered street furniture technology is the fact that it can be used to do everything from helping tourists charge their cellphones to supplying electrical power to ports and industrial operations.
