Energy Harvesting and Advanced Technologies for Enhanced Life

The objectives of this project are to: (1) to develop a perpetual pavement system with embedded solar harvesting unit; and (2) to perform a thermodynamic analysis of the pavement cooling system and the pavement system with embedded solar harvesting unit (i) to ascertain the maximum benefits that are possible within the constraints of thermodynamics, and (ii) to identify the most important sources of losses and inefficiencies within each system.
