Abstract

This paper aims to present renewable air-conditioning as a sustainable system for varied climatic conditions with the feasibility of optimization to reduce the level of energy consumption and the rate of carbon emissions. Extreme use of air-conditioning has caused substantial growth in the level of energy consumption and carbon emissions. This fact clarifies the requirement for considering improvement applications of renewable energy sources for air-conditioning systems. The components of solar air-conditioning are studied and employed as the basis for system optimization. The approach this paper presented implements a key component-based modelling analysis of renewables and modelling concepts that the geometry of this air-conditioning is founded on. The optimized model is performed using Polysun program, a renewable system analysis tool. As an exercise in the system modelling, the principle component analysis also accounts for the renewables of air-conditioning in relation to the context of the application and with respect to their integration into the climatic conditions of London, Toulouse and Rome. This, in turn, allows for the interpretation of the findings on the significance of renewables in energy consumption and carbon emissions. It also allows for the generation of a sustainability-based system that can reduce the level of energy consumption and the rate of carbon emissions. In this way, this paper uncovers the significance of renewables as a source of clean energy and sustainable practice in air-conditioning. It also reveals the particular contribution they make to the levels of energy consumption and carbon emissions that not only tackles global warming but also combats climate change.
