I think concentrating solar and running compressor using that heat directly will save lot of energy for refrigerator and air conditioning. What you have to say?

Good luck with that! If it was cost effective, it would be a mainstream alternative already.

It would have to be an absorption system, not a compressor. You could run an automotive compressor from a steam engine, but you'll be better off with PV for small systems.
