A radiative cooling structural material | Science
using boiling hydrogen peroxide, these researchers reduced/compressed wood by removing the lignin, making an engineered wood with interesting properties, such as high strength. The kicker is that the white material is also a narrowband IR emitter tuned to dump heat to space through the atmospheric windows, so it can cool you in broad daylight.

Simultaneously and Synergistically Harvest Energy from the Sun and Outer Space - ScienceDirect
If you can take out the backing metal foil of a PV panel, then line the bottom with a narrow band IR re-emitter that converts rooftop heat to a band that can escape out of the atmospheric IR window, allows roof cooling and power generation simultaneously in theory.

Hierarchically porous polymer coatings for highly efficient passive daytime radiative cooling | Science
New cheapish polymer coating to make a narrowband IR emitter that pumps through the LWIR atmospheric transmission window. So something can be cooled by exposing it to the sky.
