Overview of photovoltaics; implementation considerations; batteries, power control units and battery charging systems; water pumping; vaccine refrigeration for health care; lighting; rural telecommunications; other applications;frequently asked questions. Appendices: life cycle costing; suppliers names and addresses; tender document format.
