Natural cooling solutions for outdoor/indoor comfort
The consumption of energy for space cooling in buildings is growing quickly, reaching a global increase of about 60% recorded between 2000 and 2010 and a tripling of this demand considering the expectation far the year 2050.
A growing that is even more evident if we consider the air-condition ing market, that between 201O and 2015 has grown by 70% in the sole emerging countries.
The invited lecture of prof. David Pearlmutter, internationally recognised expert in passive cooling solutions for indoor and outdoor comfort, will introduce the results of his researches in outdoor evaporative systems, while G. Chiesa will discuss about the use of natural cooling heat sinks for indoor comfort according to a performance-driven approach.
