One of the main challenges of Power Road® is to develop the use of geothermal and solar thermal energy: the road becomes a producer and a renewable heat vector, limiting the use of fossil fuels, sources of energy. greenhouse gas emissions.
Power Road® also participates in the fight against climate change by helping to reduce the effects of urban heat islands (ICU) through the cooling of pavements. It limits the demand for energy related to air conditioning systems.
In "winter mode" thermal regulation mode, the heat available in the ground is used to ensure snow removal and de-icing of the road by eliminating the use of melting salts and thus reducing the environmental impact of the operations. road maintenance.
