Warehouse in Dubai Gets Eco-Friendly With Solar-Powered Air-Conditioning

— June 6, 2010 — Eco
A new warehouse facility in Dubai is set to earn a LEED Platinum rating largely because of its solar-powered air conditioning. The new ESAB Middle East Office and Warehouse Facility in JAFZA uses a system designed and installed by Scandinavian Cooling. The Solar Cooling solution is based on ClimateWell equipment.

A closed-loop heat pump system uses the sun's warmth in a heat exchange process. Both heating and cooling can be gleaned from the heat exchanger depending upon the tubing configuration. Johan Larsson of ClimateWell sums up the project: “Whatever is cool in Dubai is cool anywhere.”
Trend Themes
1. Solar Cooling Systems - With the rise of green technology, the trend towards the development of solar-powered cooling systems is gaining popularity as it helps in conserving electricity that is traditionally consumed by traditional cooling systems.
2. Energy-efficient Buildings - The trend towards energy-efficient buildings has become more significant than ever with the focus firmly set on the climate crisis and cost-saving measures for homeowners, businesses, and corporations alike.
3. LEED Certification - LEED Certification has emerged as a prominent trend in the construction industry as businesses and individuals are becoming more environmentally conscious, creating a demand for green buildings that meet strict environmental standards.
Industry Implications
1. HVAC Industry - The development of energy-efficient cooling systems has presented the HVAC industry with the opportunity to grow a greener and more sustainable market.
2. Construction Industry - The construction industry has the opportunity to establish its position in the global trend towards energy-efficient and eco-friendly buildings to leave a tangible impact on the environment and the economy.
3. Renewable Energy Industry - The rise of solar-powered cooling systems highlights the renewable energy industry's potential to provide sustainable solutions across all other sectors that rely heavily on traditional cooling systems by using solar power.
