The Beijing University of Technology recently held its international smart roads forum – “Linking Belt and Road, Bonding Tech and Heart”, where members of our Solar Earth Technologies team were on hand to exchange information and meet with other leaders and experts within the industry. SET Managing Director Brian Johnson was in attendance to deliver his presentation “Technology Innovation for Smart Solar Roads”, which outlined the multidisciplinary challenge of this emerging technology as well as the evolving business models required to ensure solar roads are a profitable and sustainable infrastructure investment.
The event was jointly organized by Beijing University of Technology and Vrije University Amsterdam with the intention to foster cooperation and information exchange within the larger international Intelligent Connected Roads and Smart Cities research and development communities.
“Solar Earth is very excited to have participated in this, what we all hope will be the first of many, annual such gatherings in the coming years. We’d especially like to thank Drs. Susan Tighe and Ningyuan Li from the University of Waterloo for their valuable contributions to the event.” ~ Meng Wang, SET Executive Chairman
