Abstract

The Soviet Union has thus far not been among the leading countries in solar energy research because of the high costs involved, the country's northern location and its seemingly ample fossil fuel reserves. In recent years, however, as future supplies of Soviet oil have become more uncertain, interest in solar energy has accelerated. Research centers are concentrated in the south, especially in the Crimea, Armenia and Central Asia. Work focuses mainly on practical applications, such as solar stills and ovens, water pumps, cooling systems, and space heating, as well as basic studies on more complex technologies such as photovoltaics, solar furnaces, and large central power stations.
