Save CO2 and costs by changing only the most fuel affecting road segments
Traffic accounts for more than 90% of the road’s total greenhouse gas emissions. Construction accounts for about 5% of the road’s total greenhouse gas emissions. Tiny changes in hilliness and curvature can make huge differences in energy consumption over a road’s life cycle. It’s time we shift our focus to what really matters.
Fuelsave Road design is a digital tool that helps road designers and road project managers make better decisions. It combines forecasts of traffic flow and vehicle electrification with a model that describes how road parameters affect energy consumption.
To address the most energy draining and carbon generating road segments proper visualisations are required. Fuelsave lets road designers detect transportation energy hot spots, and aim design actions to reduce energy needed where it actually makes a difference.

See how Fuelsave Road design combines:
- Our unique road database and know-how after 30 years in the road data business.
- The latest research on impacts of road geometry and road condition on energy consumption.
- The most relevant forecasts on the rapidly evolving vehicle fleet and its new types of fuel.
