Cooling and AC are some of the most energy intensive thermal process, Solar driven cooling has the potential to lower the energy used for residential AC since the production and the need for cooling is synchronized. The purpose of this project is therefore to investigate the possibility of construction a heat driven cooling cycle, with evaquated tube solar collectors as the heat source in combination with an absorption cycle.
