Buildings

As a result of better insulation the summer heat is warming buildings, often far beyond the comfortable limit of 25 ° C. In many situations this warmth is unpleasant or even undesirable, for example in the office, at school but also in health care. SolabCool can provide you with cool summers in your building by means of adsorption, thus there is no need for the use of electric air conditioning in the building that increases electricity consumption and CO ² emissions. In many standard type air conditioning systems Freon is used that will be banned in the near future. SolabCool offers sustainable and efficient cooling at a lower cost.

Key Benefits SolabCool

  • Increased comfort in buildings by proper cooling.
  • Growing demand for sustainable cooling.
  • Use available energy.
  • Improving the energy performance of your home.
  • Less CO2 emissions from waste heat and / or solar collectors.
  • Cooling at a lower cost.
  • Installation is possible per building.

Energy Performance Coefficient

In the Netherlands there are requirements on the energy consumption in buildings from the EPC (Energy Performance Coefficient). This arises from the European directive (Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, EPBD). Energy saving measures lead to a lower EPC.

EPC construction

In order to increase the comfort in buildings the expectations is that a large part of the future new building projects will be provided with cooling. In this way, a pleasant temperature can be obtained in the building each season. To get a building permit construction projects must meet the required EPC value. It is expected that from 2015 the standard of the EPC will be lowered. The application of district heating allows for a major improvement of this EPC value.

In combination with

SolabCool is universally applicable and ideal for cooling buildings. In combination with a heating network, solar energy combined heat and power can achieve a new dimension in sustainable and efficient cooling.

SolabCascade

The SolabCascade is unique because it is modular and scalable. The SolabCool technology ensures a comfortable temperature in an office or a different building. The SolabCascade is made up of SolabPumps. A SolabPump has a maximum power of 5 kW (nominal 4 kW). By using multiple SolabPumps in a cascade set-up applying the maximum installed power in steps of 5 kW (nominal 4 kW) can be extended.

The SolabPump is unique in the way that cooling is generated. The SolabCool technology uses waste heat to provide cooling. Read more about the principle of operation under SolabCool technology.
