Hungarian tech company Platio uses recycled plastic to build solar panels into pavements, which can power buildings and charge electronic devices.

Each panel produces approximately 20 watts of energy, and they can be installed in places where conventional solar panels are unsuitable.

The tech company has already built an 80-square-meter pavement to power air conditioning in a shopping mall.
