Indeed, to the MIT Technology Review, the NREL have created ” a new air-conditioner design that (…) will dramatically increase efficiency and eliminate gases that contribute to global warming. “
Using indirect evaporative cooling, and desiccants this invention would use up to 90 percent less energy and wouldn’t need CFCs to operate.
These A/C systems could be commercialized within five years and would replace easily current systems.
These news prove once again that huge energy quantities can be saved and that the use of dangerous substances can be avoided through scientific research.
Let’s hope such breakthroughs will keep occurring !
