Jan. 11, 2011: Hitachi Develops Solar-Activated Air Conditioning System
This system is designed to drive a refrigerator directly with thermal energy generated from the solar energy collector to obtain chilled water for air conditioning.
Hitachi said the key to this system is its high-efficiency parabola trough-type solar energy collector. The device is designed to track the sun automatically with a parabolic reflector while maintaining the position of the fluid-filled heat collector tubing at the focal point of the parabola. The collector is said to provide a simple and easily-handled structure.
