This is a scientific paper done by Luis Eduardo about using solar energy for refrigeration. Refrigeration becomes very important especially for rural areas where electricity is not reliable. Using renewable energy in rural areas would decrease the use of electrical energy in the country, providing thus more reliable energy to the populations of these remote areas.
The document includes some literature about both photovoltaics and solar thermal technologies and applications. It passes in review the development of the international solar market, including the specific case of Brazil. Brazil is clearly one of the countries where a lot more could be done with solar energy. The author then goes more in details about the use of process heat, giving examples of some companies in other countries.
