What is solar energy


Solar energy is the light and radiant heat
from the Sun that influences Earth's climate
and weather and sustains life. By using this
energy electricity can be produced with
help of solar technology.
Solar
technologies
are
characterized as:

Active solar technology

Passive solar technology

Photovoltaic cell
Photovoltaic cells are used to convert
solar energy directly into electricity using
semiconductors . This is active type of
solar technology

Why to use a solar cell


Solar energy is preferable as compared to
another energy sources due to following
reasons
Reduced Dependence on Fossil Fuels
Environment friendly
Matching Peak Time Output with Peak Time
Demand
Modularity and Scalability

What Does Solar Roadways Mean


A solar roadway is a road surface that
generates
electricity
by
solar
power
photovoltaic cells embedded below a tough
translucent surface which provides sufficient
traction.

Road survey of india


India had a road network of over 42,45,805 kilometers in
2011.
In which national highways and state highways cover
0.05% of total road network.
These highways can produce 450TWh of electricity
according to references when they are surfaced by solar
panels.
But India needs 991TWh of electricity.
This implies that if 0.1% of total road network of India is
surfaced with Solar Roadway panels, it would illuminate
our nation.

Aesthetics
The power lines and data lines running over the
poles,
Make the city ugly
Interrupt to the way of vehicles
Need a frequent maintenance when bad
atmosphere tends to break them
Increase the overall cost as they needs poles
to run over
Hacking of trees is required when they come

Illuminated Roads
Many people driving their vehicle at night
cannot see the road ahead due to oncoming
headlights or rain.
The Solar Roadways will have LEDs which will
illuminate the lanes.
Thus the rate of accidents will be reduced and
illumination of roads will add to the aesthetics
of the city.

Intelligent highway
The LEDs can be programmed to show the instructions such as - SLOW, STOP, GO, SPEED LIMIT, etc.
The LEDS can also be programmed to warn drivers of an animal on the road, an accident, or
construction work.
Central control stations will be able to instantly customize the lanes and words on the panels as like
screen, reducing traffic congestion.

Conclusion
For roughly the same cost of the current systems (asphalt roads and fossil
fuel burning electricity generation plants), the Solar Roadways can be
implemented.
No more Global Warming.
Safer driving conditions.
Far less pollution.
A new secure highway infrastructure that pays for itself.
A decentralized, self-healing, secure power grid.
No more dependency on foreign oil.
