The world's first photovoltaic expressway came into use in Jinan, east China's Shandong province on December 28, 2017.

The 2-kilometer-long special section of Jinan's southern ring road has three layers. The bottom is an insulating layer to prevent moisture from getting to the photovoltaic devices in the middle layer, and the top is the protection layer built by transparent concrete.

The photovoltaic panels, which look like pieces of glass can hold middle size vans with strong friction.

With the capability of generating electricity under sunlight, photovoltaic roads can release power to electric vehicles passing on them. They are also able to instantly melt winter snow covering the road.

The roads are also designed to provide technical support to unmanned vehicles in the future.
