Based on the research it is to be expected that in all SolaRoad elements produced for these pilots heavy traffic will eventually (partly) detach the solar panels from the underlying concrete. When used by traffic, this will therefore lead to further damage in all elements. The pilot locations can therefore no longer be put into use. Because the places where the solar panels detach from the concrete are not accessible from the outside, repair of the elements is not possible.
Although the pilots ended after only a short time, they provided a wealth of information. The insight into the occurrence and development of the damages is of great value for the further development of SolaRoad road surfaces.
