    A desuperheater is a heat exchanger used to scavenge wasted energy in the exhaust of superheated steam boilers. The only application I can think of  in solar energy, would be in a solar thermal power plants, usually large scale and complex, not for DIY applications.

    A desuperheater can also be used in the hot gas discharge line of an airconditioning or refrigeration system to heat water for domestic or process use.

    Or as Honda planned ( a bit different)  with their home generators. The CoGen was tested in England but never made it over the pond.
