Hit the road Jack

Industry FocusBy Advantech | 5/26/2014
There are roughly 12 million miles (18 million Km) of paved road and countless millions of square kilometers of paved carparks (parking lots), driveways, pavements (sidewalks), tennis and basketball courts, and other areas covered in tarmac in the world and since all of this area gets many hours of sunlight a day its potential for generating power is huge. The concept has been talked about for a long time, after all when the sun beats down on concrete it gets hot and causes urban heat islands. Urban heat islands (UHI) are the difference in temperature between a town or a city and their rural surroundings. They cause an increase in the length of the growing seasons; decrease the chance of weak tornadoes and a decrease in air quality and downwind of the UHI rainfall is increased.
