LED technology has meant a revolution in the lighting sector where new performance in parameters such as efficiency, reliability or color reproduction index are changing the way installations are designed or renovated The energy savings offered by LEDs over conventional technologies make it possible to review the viability of renewable energy installations (using, for example, photovoltaic panels) even for traffic vials with the highest standard requirements for highways or other high traffic density routes. We have performed an analysis of the present and immediate future state of the art of the components of these facilities: luminaires, generator panels and energy storage. With this information, and through simulations, we stablish the LED power needed to meet the requirements of these roads and we calculate the capacity of photovoltaic energy generation in different latitudes of the planet Thus, we establish a technical and economic feasibility estimation principle for these projects depending on their location and, where appropriate, concrete optimal models of implementation are presented, such as the use of integrated panels on the luminaire posts or the need to generate concentrated plants of generators, preferred locations of batteries,...
