Today more than 99% of thermoelectric power plants (coal Rankine, natural gas combined cycle, solar thermal, etc) in the United States utilize some form of wet cooling due to the superior thermal properties of water over air. Further, for large-scale building cooling applications, wet cooling of the condenser is employed as well. Globally, the projected growth of electrification and air conditioning deployment is a particular concern in water-constrained areas in northern Af-rica, the middle east, and India where further cooling load requirements will put stresses on limited water supplies.

The deployment of solar technology has experienced incredible growth in the past decade. This deployment has been dominated by single-junction silicon photovoltaic (PV) technology. These devices are characterized by a single bandgap, which is unable to convert a significant fraction of the incident solar spectrum.

ARPA-E’s RANGE (Robust Affordable Next Generation Energy Storage Systems) program funded high-risk research projects to change the way electric vehicle battery systems are built. The program is a success both in terms of individual projects and in reshaping the paradigm about energy storage as a whole to include system-level considerations.
