Some of the paper abstracts I have seen when searching tunnel diodes
seem to imply that they are being used in solar arrays for switching.

I dimly recall a mention of 100-ampere tunnel diodes, likely lab curiosities
that never saw production in any meaningful quantities. One possible
application might have served as switches in a DC-to-DC convertor fed
by power from low-voltage sources (thermopiles?).
