What’s going on in the RNN world
We have kick started 2017 with a new addition to the team - welcoming Natalie, our new intern. Natalie is here on a six-week placement from La Rochelle, so it seems fitting that we start the New Year with a ‘Green’ story from France.
And as if on cue, a Normandy town has officially opened what is claimed to be the world's first solar panel road!
Simply by using sunlight, a kilometre-long stretch of road can light the town of over 5,000 inhabitants. Using innovative and unparalleled cutting-edge technology combining road construction and photovoltaic techniques, the solar pavement provides clean, renewable energy in the form of electricity, while maintaining the road’s conventional use – as a vector for mobility.
If the road proves successful – solar powered highways could be the future of travel!
