Solar Cooling can provide a solution to the many problems associated with conventional methods of cooling buildings. It can reduce the peak electricity loads on the network and the total energy consumption required by conventional air conditioning. It also has environmentally friendly refrigerants that are neither GHGs nor ozone-depleting. To help answer the challenge of reducing energy consumption for air conditioning, we are offering a workshop to learn, share, collaborate and to begin developing solar cooling into a thriving industry in Texas.

           

There is a strong relation between the demand for air conditioning and the available solar radiation; it therefore makes sense to fully utilize solar collectors for cooling. Dehumidification requirements during the summer are a large part of the Texas cooling load. Desiccant technologies have the ability to dehumidify significantly reducing the cooling load. This makes desiccants ideal for such applications as schools that air condition empty rooms to avoid moisture damage. Solar cooling allows collectors to be used to provide hot water, heating AND cooling to fully utilize their potential. This can largely be applied to shopping centers and hotels.
