Cooling buildings is a major global energy consumer and the energy requirement is growing year by year. This guide to solar cooling technology explains all you need to know about how solar energy can be converted into cooling energy. It outlines the difference between heat-driven and photovoltaic-driven systems and gives examples of both, making clear in what situations solar cooling technology makes sense. It includes chapters on:

' solar thermal collectors

' solar cooling technologies

' cold distribution

' storage components

' designing and sizing

' installation, operation and maintenance

' economic feasibility

' potential markets

' case studies.

Solar Coolingis for engineers, architects, consultancies, solar thermal technology companies, students and anyone who is interested in getting involved with this technology.
