PIARC project on positive energy roads

The World Road Association – PIARC- is launching a global call for proposals for the “Positive Energy Roads” Special Project to be completed in 2019.

The World Road Association (PIARC) has established a Special Projects fund to enable it to respond outside the usual four years programme cycle to emerging issues and priorities identified by its members. This paper is a Call for Proposals to conduct the “Positive Energy Roads (PER)” Special Project.  The study should propose a definition for PER itself,  but as a starting point for the call for proposals, the PER definition would be: A PER is a road infrastructure that produces more energy from renewable sources or traffic lost of energy than it consumes during operation phase or during construction and operational phases.

The purpose of this proposed project is to assess feasibility and future development of Positive Energy Roads through the analysis of a business model from Road Authorities perspective, including which technologies bring higher advantages to achieve an affordable business model for road administrations depending on local context.

Deadline for submission: 15 February 201
