The Australian Solar Cooling Interest Group (ausSCIG) supported by the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Airconditioning and Heating (AIRAH) will hold its 2013 solar cooling conference at CSIRO’s North Ryde Auditorium on Friday April 12, 2013.
According to the latest IEA Technology Roadmap on Solar Heating and Cooling published in June 2012 solar cooling is expected to play a significant role in air-conditioning worldwide, but especially in South East Asia. The roadmap vision is that around 20% of global air-conditioning needs to be covered in 2050 by solar cooling systems.
Therefore, the Australian Solar Cooling 2013 Conference is focusing on regional industry reports from Europe, China and Australia as well as technical sessions on latest component, system and industry developments and case studies.
In addition to the conference program, a Solar Cooling Training Course will be held on April 11 for those seeking an overview of the technical, economic and bigger picture aspects of solar cooling. The course will also provide design tips and technical case studies for industry specialists.
The conference will be supported by experts of the multi-country project of the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme "Quality Assurance and Support Measures for Solar Cooling (Task 48)".
