Title: kindergarten cooling with solar energy
The demand for air conditioning is growing at a high rate worldwide. While producing hot air by making use of solar power seems to be an easy task, producing cold air using solar power may seem paradoxical at first sight. However, there exist thermal processes to produce cold driven directly by a heat input from a solar system. In this project, an innovative solar assisted heating and cooling system was installed for the kindergarten related to the Technical University of Milan in order to achieve a high level of indoor comfort for children.
