This month, Advanced Energy Materials publishes a Special Issue “Solar Technologies go Hybrid” (SolTech) guest edited by Peter Müller-Buschbaum (Technical University of Munich, Germany). The Special Issue includes 13 review-type articles highlighting recent progress in all fields of solar-energy related research. The SolTech network was initiated by the Bavarian Government in 2012 to examine innovative concepts in solar energy use, i.e., the conversion of solar energy to electricity and chemical energy for immediate and future use, respectively.
