7th International Conference on Solar Air-Conditioning
31 October, 2017
Abu Dhabi, UAE
While the initial plan was to hold the conference in Spain, we now have moved the 7th International Conference on Solar Air Conditioning to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
One decade ago, the Conference dominantly dealt with solar thermal cooling as THE renewable solution for the future. In 2017, the situation is strongly different because meanwhile solar photovoltaic faced strong reduction in prices, the solar thermal market only slowly gains importance.
As a matter of fact, the 7th conference on solar cooling is strongly giving the floor to this new generation of solar cooling systems based on the coupling between PV and air conditioning systems. The competition between solar thermal and solar photovoltaic which is hard and essentially in favor of the electrical solution at least for small to medium power range (until 100 kWcooling) is representing as well a very stimulating factor for innovation in the sector of solar thermal cooling.
Another hot topic during the new edition is the diversification of usage of the solar heat beyond simply cooling: domestic hot water, space heating, process heat, heating for networks.
