The starting point for the development is that the balance of costs and benefits of the life span is positive, compared to existing road surfaces. SolaRoad is being developed by a tripartite consortium of partners, in which industry, knowledge institutes and government join forces in order to innovate. The intention is that the product will soon become available on the open market and that an appropriate and healthy business model will be developed.
