Solar thermal cooling allows reducing power consumption and electricity costs. Due to the fast growing cooling demand, solar solutions will become an important pillar of cold supply. In industry and commerce, thermal driven absorption chillers offer attractive opportunities when they are powered by solar thermal collectors or waste heat.

Absorption chillers are driven by heat and thus have a very low power demand. Heat, captured in solar thermal collectors, powers the cooling cycle by separating a refrigerant from a carrier material. When the refrigerant is later evaporated, it provides cooling by withdrawing heat from the environment.
