Sustainable Cooling: A Opportunity for European Startups
Some of the most efficient techniques for avoiding high energy demands use passive cooling methods to reduce the cooling load.
The cooling market is expected to grow by 24% in Europe by 2030, and companies that can develop technologies
to capitalize on this growing demand while providing environmentally friendly solutions will achieve enviable success.
Among the startups developing cooling systems while mitigating climate change, Netherland-based Triple Solar definitely deserves a mention
Using photovoltaic technology, the company invented the PVT heat pump panel. Its front side consists of solar cells that convert sunlight into electricity
while the rear side is a heat exchanger that provides the energy source for a special PVT heat pump.
PVT panels extract energy from the air and the sun. Therefore, it can provide heat, cooling and electri
city without using fossil fuels.
