Paving stone-actuated heat exchanger garners green grant

The developer of ThermaPaver, an insulated aluminum panel potentially functioning as an all-climate heat exchanger, is one of six University of New Hampshire Green Launching Pad grant recipients.

The closed-loop ThermaPaver technology can convey heat to or source it from geothermal systems and, in the winter, reverse the heat transfer process to melt snow and ice.
