Reinvention of Passive Cooling Revealed

Researchers have developed a new ceramic material with superior reflectivity and emissivity, allowing continuous sub-ambient cooling in an outdoor setting with a cooling power of over 130 watts per square meter at noon. The material, which mimics the white desert beetle, has the potential to reduce the thermal load of buildings and provide stable cooling performance in various climates, enhancing energy efficiency and curbing demand for space cooling.

Dr Peter Harrop, CEO of analysts Zhar Research, commented that the material has a cost-effectiveness, durability and versatility that make it highly suitable for commercialisation in numerous applications, particularly in building construction. He added that nature teaches us that multifunctional cooling is the way to go, and that there is much more to come.

Zhar Research has two reports taking perspectives of passive cooling materials and devices, and solid-state cooling markets, available at www.zharresearch.com and www.giiresearch.com.
