Task 25

Objectives

Solar collector field of a desiccant cooling plant for air-conditioning of an office in Lisbon, Portugal  Solar powered desiccant cooling unit for air-conditioning of an office in Sintra, Portugal

The main objective of Task 25 was to improve the conditions for the market entry of solar assisted cooling systems in order to promote a reduction of primary energy consumption and electricity peak loads due to cooling.

Therefore the project aims were:

  • The definition of performance criteria of solar assisted cooling systems considering both energy-relevant as well as economic performance
  • The identification and further development of promising solar assisted cooling technologies
  • An optimized integration of solar assisted cooling systems into the building and the HVAC-system focusing on an optimized primary energy saving - cost performance
  • The creation of design tools and design concepts for architects, planners and civil engineers
