Spectral filters could boost the performance of concentrated photovoltaic thermal systems   A concentrated photovoltaic thermal system is a hybrid system that combines concentrated photovoltaic and solar thermal technology and could help increase the share of renewables in the energy mix. A major drawback of the technology is that when the intensity of the solar radiation increases, so does the temperature, which compromises the electrical efficiency of the photovoltaic cell.

Despite international agreements tackling climate change and global warming, CO2 emissions and global warming continue their upward trend. Urban areas and building environment experience higher temperatures and more frequent heatwaves, threatening the health and well-being of citizens. The urban heat island (UHI) phenomenon makes cities warmer than surrounding areas, critically affecting the urban climate.
