plant, a cold storage depot has been designed to store fruit and vegetables at 4°C, driven by solar energy only. Refrigeration load is 60 kW...Refrigeration driven by solar thermal energy is attractive because fossil fuels can be substituted by renewable energy whose availability usually is in phase with required cooling loads. In numerous applications this solar cooling has been realised for air conditioning, e.g. H2O/LiBr-absorption cycles or desiccant evaporative open-cycle systems (DEC). ..

A feasibility study was conducted to determine if solar power could be used to offset or eliminate the diesel fuel powered refrigeration systems currently used in transport applications. This study focused on the technical feasibility and economic viability of solar for this application. A target application was selected and a moderately detailed mathematical model was constructed to predict the performance of the system based on hourly solar insolation and temperature data in four U.S. cities. An economic analysis is presented comparing the use of solar photovoltaics vs. diesel for this application.
Innovators at NASA’s Johnson Space Center have patented a proven, solar-powered refrigeration system that eliminates reliance on an electric grid, requires no batteries, and stores thermal energy for efficient use when sunlight is absent. The innovation uses a variable speed, direct current (DC) vapor compression cooling system, connected to a solar photovoltaic (PV) panel via novel electronic controls
