dc.description.abstractIn an era where "Global Warming" is growing more popular each day, and fossil fuels are becoming more limited. It is important for researchers to find a better replacement for our current energy system. The major problems with our current energy consumption are the severe threat its creating to the environment and the limitation of the fossil fuels in nature that will cause a resource crisis in the near future. For such problems, this paper proposes a better alternative for the most traditional way used in asphalt roadways; this breakthrough technology is solar roadways. Solar roadways are micro processing hexagonal interlocks solar units used in roads, parking lots and driveways. Analysis showed that for the industrial field, this model will return its cost over less than 30 years period. These roadways will be a better alternative for the use of petroleum-based asphalt roads and for fossil fuel in energy consumption; therefore creating a far more clean energy, and a far more friendly and green environment.en_US
