Here’s a recording of our session at the recently concluded The Future Energy Show Philippines 2023, A Realistic Path for the Clean Energy Transition delivered by Nick Dizon. Topics included the solar power duck curve, energy storage, and the reduce-first-produce-second method using a combination of renewable air conditioning and solar PV.
The SunTrac Solar Thermal SmartPanel is a solar air conditioning solution that employs a renewable energy method of adding pressure and heat to the refrigeration cycle. This, in turn, reduces the required workload of the compressor and lowers the overall power consumption of the system.
This hybrid-thermal air conditioning system displaces a portion of the mechanical energy used by variable capacity, multi-stage, and variable speed compressors, keeping the compressors in low stage, low range, or low capacity while still delivering full and part-load cooling requirements. As a result, the approach translates to significant energy savings.
