Abstract: Roadways are major civil structures for transportation. Transportation systems use 25% of the world’s total energy production and are one of the prime sources of CO2 emission. For sustainable development and to reduce carbon emission, renewable energy is becoming very widespread. Researches have been done on the solar roadways using photovoltaic cells and solar panels. In this paper an integrated approach is discussed on how solar roads can benefit the current and future generations in multiple ways so that it will help to provide solutions in overcoming the obstacles of basic necessities including clean air, purified water secured food and clean energy, employment, national announcements/road announcements, electric charging, highway intelligence etc.
