The coupling is possible between an thermal source of solar energy and a discontinue thermal chemical system of high capacity of thermal energy storage. The experimental performances of solar cold generation system by using the heat source at 80°C to 120°C and the theoretical predictions, based on first and second principles, of cold and/or heat generation systems by utilising the heat sources at T≥180° have been demonstrated. Interest is underlined in the thermal chemical transformers of strong amplification of heat.
