Designed and developed by researchers from NUS, this air-conditioning system cools hot air using water instead of chemical refrigerants and does not require a compressor. Without using chlorofluorocarbons and emitting any hot air, this makes the system very sustainable and eco-friendly.
In-direct evaporative cooling is used as a strategy that utilises a combination of evaporative cooling (free cooling) and mechanical cooling to reduce energy consumption. The IDEC operational efficiency is governed by ambient wet-bulb temperature.
NUSCool’s technology can be applied in many areas including but not limited to commercial buildings, data centers, outdoor public spaces and many more in providing cooling solutions for different climates.
