Market sectors : Solar Cooling
Up to 21% of all final energy use and feedstock in manufacturing industry can be provided by renewable energies by 2050, concludes UNIDO, the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation, on this report published in 2010.
The publication sheds some light on the use of renewable energies (biomass, solar thermal, heat pumps) in industrial applications. Although widely known for its use in residential applications, renewable energies are less common in manufacturing.
This paper is taken from the proceedings of the 2nd PALENC conference and 28th AIVC conference on Building Energy Cooling and Advanced Ventilation Technologies in the 21st Century. It explores the potential cooling demand in a dwelling in the UK and the potential use of solar thermal cooling systems. As UK Building regulations demand better insulated and more airtight new buildings, the demand for cooling as begun to escalate in UK new build dwellings.
