Road photovoltaic power generation is a technology that combines photovoltaic power generation while maintaining the function of the existing road by installing special photovoltaic modules on it. In this paper, we developed three types of modules and structures suitable for sidewalk blocks and element technology for the development of a solar road module for a sidewalk and bicycle road. The road solar potential in Korea is 10 GW. After analyzing the daily data obtained after the construction of a 10 kW solar road testbed, it was found that its utilization rate compared to the general photovoltaic energy is 80%.
