Context and objectives

With Power Road®, Eurovia uses the solar thermal energy captured by roads through tubes integrated into the pavement. This solar heat is injected into geothermal storage facilities and released in winter to heat a building.

 

Project characteristics

INOLYA, whose founding values are innovation and environmental and social responsibility, has chosen EUROVIA’s Power Road® process to heat and produce hot water for 61 flats in a social housing residence in Fleury-sur-Orne. The installation of nearly 1,500 sqm of Power Road has made it possible to replace conventional gas heating for 4,800 sqm² of social residential buildings with a low carbon heating system. The energy system is equipped with the intelligent PILOT LowCarbon control system, which provides energy savings of 60% compared with the historical gas heating system.

Results

The system implemented has reduced energy consumption by 60% and carbon emissions by 71% compared to a standard gas solution. This demonstrates the possibility to offer low income households solutions that reduce their carbon footprint while guaranteeing their comfort.
