|Solar air conditioning refers to any air conditioning (cooling) system that uses solar power.This can be done through passive solar, solar thermal energy conversion and photovoltaic conversion (sunlight to electricity). The U.S. Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 created 2008 through 2012 funding for a new solar air conditioning research and development program, which should develop and demonstrate multiple new technology innovations and mass production economies of scale. Solar air conditioning will play an increasing role in zero-energy and energy-plus buildings design.|
|Air can be passed over common, solid desiccants (like silica gel or zeolite) to draw moisture from the air to allow an efficient evaporative cooling cycle. The desiccant is then regenerated by using solar thermal energy to dehumidfy, in a cost-effective, low-energy-consumption, continuously repeating cycle.A photovoltaic system can power a low-energy air circulation fan, and a motor to slowly rotate a large disk filled with desiccant.|
|Split Cool DC-18 DC Heat Pumpm|
|The DC-18 solar air conditioner has been designed to make the best possible use of costly solar photovoltaic panels.The DC-18 can use approximately 40% fewer solar panels than would be required by a standard AC-powered air conditioner of the same max capacity running of solar panels through an inverter. The system is perfect for residential,commercial, telecom, portable classrooms or offices, or remote facilities where conventional or generator power is costly and/or unreliable.|
