Abstract: The Sun's energy reaches the surface of the Earth in abundance, delivering a peak spectral solar flux of approximately 1000 W/m2 at sea level on a clear day. This virtually limitless source of energy can be absorbed and used for a multitude of purposes including the desalination of water, space heating, cooling by absorption refrigeration and cooking.
