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.

Using the whole house/roof as a sun tracker is kinda interesting, when the interior walls are exposed to exterior lighting in the daytime, but sealing up at night for better insulation?

We put green on your green, so you can green while you green... Actually, while aesthetically pleasing, the added weight and increased air drag probably offset any reduction in AC use. Though a willow grass covered bus would have a serious dreadlock/rastafarian look to it.

Edano wants households to lend their roofs to solar drive - AJW by The Asahi Shimbun
So they idea is to get a group buy corp to bulk purchase the panels, and do the install work, in exchange for reduced power rates for the home owners potentially. Would make better sense in a retrofit view if there was integrated energy storage with demand metering and feed-in, going all in on a HEMS. More integration is cross link with a natural gas fuelcell, hot water tank, and adsorption cooling HVAC compressor (waste heat from the fuelcell/hot water tank drives the air conditioner)
