The report analyst commented, "Goodyear recently unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show in March 2015, its concept tire BHO3 that transforms the heat generated by the rolling tire into electrical energy. This electrical energy can be used to charge EV batteries. Such tires would even use sunlight, as in when the sunlight hits the tires and the ground beneath, the tires start to warm. The tire is given an extra black coat to absorb maximum light and heat. The heat would be transferred to the car through thermoelectric materials that are under the tire's surface that are able to generate voltage as there is a change in temperature. The thermoelectric materials in the tire can also capture the energy from the heat and friction that is generated when the tire moves."
