Solar driven cooling systems: An updated review


This paper presents a review of the available technologies to provide cooling from solar energy for both thermal and photovoltaic ways. Several multi-criteria performance indicators figuring in the literature are presented followed by a pros and cons analysis of the different solar thermal cooling processes. A market study is also carried out to evidence the potential of these solar cooling technologies. Finally, an overview of various solar cooling installations in Europe, Egypt and China is presented.
