In order to meet the growing demand for global consumption, a new form of renewable, green and clean energy is needed to meet societal needs. The reduction of fossil fuels can only be made possible by newer green energy projects. This article aims to provide an alternative energy source through the use of piezoelectric material. The piezoelectric effect is the most important principle behind the piezoelectric material. It collects the waste energy generated on the highway by moving vehicles to

It also provides a feasibility study of electrical generation from piezoelectric generators embedded on a highway in the asphalt surface. The energy generated can be used to power street lamps and can be fed into the grid in the future.
