Abstract

The Natural Park of Queyras has implemented a demonstration photovoltaic programme for 41 shelters and 20 hotels and refuges. For installations on isolated sites in Natural Parks, it is difficult to consider economic profitability relative to other systems. The aims of the programme were: (i) for the hotels and refuges to test the operating of refrigerators and freezers (high capacity, 200 and 300 l); (ii) for two refuges to test the working of a sun-following control system with a direct solar floor and a volumetric pump at 3,400 m altitude. This project shows that the prospects for the use of PV generators are good.
