Commercial Photovoltaics (PV) can only convert ~15% of sunlight into electricity, with the rest wasted as heat. The resulting high PV temperatures decrease the efficiency, shorten the lifetime, and cause fire risks, thus should be suppressed. These dilemmas call for innovation to address PV thermal management in a high-flux, energy-free, and water-free way.
