What questions are we trying to answer?
Street Coolers' aim is to provide the data to understand the effect that changing the albedo of roads has on ambient temperatures. We know that increasing shade and vegetation is the main way to reduce city temperatures, but what is the temperature reduction potential of pale pavements? For streets where planting trees is not an option, are pale pavements a suitable alternative to reduce ambient temperatures? If we combine the two, do we see an increased benefit in temperature reduction?
We would like to understand pale pavements as a parameter that can reduce cities’ ambient temperatures. How do pale pavements affect surrounding temperatures, and in turn how does this affect the amount of energy consumed by buildings?
