CCHP & Solar Cooling Via the Smart Adsorption Chiller

The rapid increase of power and energy demand around the world accompanied with the predictable depletion of natural resources of fossil fuel, as well as its harmful effect on global climate and environment change has recalled for insistent and innovative solutions that help in solving the energy crisis.

1) One of the solutions is to switch as much as possible to clean renewable energy technologies. Another important solution is the distributed energy system which is more cost effective and efficient in the long term. One assured approach of energy distribution systems is the combined cooling, heating, and power (CCHP) which uses the current conventional energy generation technologies with new developed inventions that achieve high efficient recovery of wasted energy and comply the environmental requirements.

Combined cooling, heating, and power (CCHP) systems are characterized by a decentralized power generation source where a portion of the heat released as a byproduct of generation is recovered rather than rejected to the atmosphere. This typically wasted thermal energy is then used for space heating, hot water, or for space cooling. The process can be a highly efficient use of input energy and may result in economic savings, reduced emissions, and reduced overall primary energy consumption (PEC)

Precision industries are proud to introduce the new CCHP system using the adsorption chiller introduced by Prof. Ayman Al-Maaitah (patented technology US 8,479,529 B2)

2) Another solution is to use the solar power as the source of the CCHP systems, in these systems, cool load is produced by the adsorption chiller which uses the heated water by the solar collectors.
