Harvesting Solar Energy From Pavement to Power Streetlights, Heat Buildings

The heat radiating off roadways has long been a factor in explaining why city temperatures are often considerably warmer than nearby suburban or rural areas. University of Rhode Island researchers are examining methods of harvesting that solar energy to melt ice, power streetlights, illuminate signs, heat buildings, and potentially use it for many other purposes.
