Titlefreescoo, a new idea for solar air conditioning
Project id.92
Reference sectorRENEWABLE ENERGY
IP Protection LevelItalian Patent International application deposited PTC/IB2013/058322
Description of the innovation projectFreescoo is an innovative compact solar air conditioning system designed for ventilation, cooling, dehumidification and heating of buildings in residential and tertiary sectors. Main feature of the system is compactness, since every component used for the operation is included in one casing. The unit is based on an new solar Desiccant Evaporative Cooling (DEC) concept. Solar heat and water are used to drive the cooling process for conditioning the space which the unit is connected with. The system is based on an original air handling process which guarantees the temperature and humidity control. In addition, the system is designed to provide also the air change in the conditioned space.
