A Cooling Solution with Zero Electricity Consumption

Dr Edwin Chi Yan Tso studies new model of passive cooling

Heat and humidity in places like Hong Kong have made space cooling essential to every household. Refrigeration, space cooling and heating account for more than 38% of energy consumption in commercial buildings in Hong Kong, compared to about 20% in the United States. By modeling natural phenomena such as frost, Tso and his team have created an environmentally friendly device using a passive radiative cooling technique that can cool down indoor space without using electricity...
