Solar road

, December 23, 2016

French Minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy Segolene Royal (C) inaugurates a solar panel road in Tourouvre au Perche, northern France on December 22. The world's first solar panel road introduced a technology developed in France despite criticism of its high costs of five million euro ($5.2 million) per kilometre. Aim of the road's test phase is to evaluate whether it can provide enough energy to power the street lighting in the village.  EPA/Christophe Petit Tesson
