The steady rise in the price of petroleum and its derivatives and the onset of a universal energy crisis which is expected to occur in the decades to come are undoubtedly behind the renewed, interest in solar, energy in the developed as well as the developing countries. The fact that all Governments are rapidly becoming aware of the enormous possibilities offered by the use of direct solar radiation to meet their future energy needs and that scientists all over the world, even in countries with relatively limited potential in solar energy, are putting more and more efforts into harnessing this, source of energy can be explained by its chief attributes and advantage.
