The exigency for energy is increasing with
developing technology and rapid rise in world
population. The increasing energy rates and the urging
need for environmentally friendly refrigerants has led
scientists in the fields of refrigeration engineering to
develop technologies for the utilization of conventional
renewable energy resources. The deployment of
insolation energy for refrigeration systems would help to
unravel the existing energy crisis along with
environmental protection. Hence an exertion has been
made to understand the various approaches taken to
make use of solar energy for refrigeration systems and
its potential applications.
