Industrial cooling: chillers and evaporators?

This data-file captures the costs of industrial cooling, especially liquid cooling using commercial HVAC equipment, across heat-exchangers, cooling tower evaporators and chillers. Our base case is that removing 100MW-th of…

Air conditioning: energy demand sensitivity?

Air conditioning energy demand

…are power-grid planner. This data-file calculates how energy demand changes with cooling degree days. Against a baseline of 1,500 US Cooling Degree Days per year (in Fahrenheit terms), a good…

AirJoule: Metal Organic Framework HVAC breakthrough?

…vehicle. Typical air conditioners have a coefficient of performance (COP) of 2.5-3.5x, which means that each kWh of electricity inputs will deliver 2.5-3.5 kWh-th of cooling energy. Cooling energy, in…

Air conditioning: energy consumption?

…costs. About one-third of the total energy requirements from air conditioning are expended cooling air (specific heat capacity) and two-thirds are expended condensing water vapor (water will naturally drop out…

Thermoelectrics: leading companies and products?

Thermoelectric devices convert heat directly into electricity, or conversely provide localized cooling/heating by absorbing electricity. This data-file screens leading companies in thermoelectrics, their product specifications, applications and underlying calculations for…

Ground source heat pumps: the economics?

The breakdown of heat pumps economics. The largest costs are in piping and duct work.

This data-file models heat pump economics, costs, energy savings and potential CO2 savings of a ground source heat pump (GHP), compared to traditional home heating and cooling options. A GHP…
