Increasing the conversion efficiency of incident solar energy to electricity is a key goal in the solar R&D community. In this issue of Joule, a conceptual hybrid photovoltaic/thermal (PV/T) receiver design is reported by the research groups of Evelyn Wang and Gang Chen. High exergetic efficiency is achieved by absorbing below-bandgap and excessively high-energy photons as thermal energy, while allowing photons at the PV’s bandgap to pass through to the underlying cell.

ARPA-E’s impact assessment initiative documents the scientific and commercial successes achieved by a selection of ARPA-E-funded projects. The third installment of this series, “ARPA-E Impacts: A Sampling of Project Outcomes, Volume III” provides a glimpse into the diverse and sophisticated research portfolio of advanced energy technologies that will enable the United States to tackle our most pressing energy challenges.

Recent advances in wide band-gap (WBG) semiconductor materials, such as silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) are enabling a new generation of power semiconductor devices that far exceed the performance of silicon-based devices. Past ARPA-E programs (ADEPT, Solar ADEPT, and SWITCHES) have enabled innovations throughout the power electronics value chain, especially in the area of WBG semiconductors.
