German scientists from the Institute for Solar Energy Fraunhofer have made devices that convert solar cooling in reality, especially in countries such as Morocco or Tunisia which have a very hot climate. Africa as a whole could benefit from this invention, since refrigerators are very rare and are a luxury for which the required electrical connection.

Every country that has many sunny days is a perfect market for solar cooling devices and people who normally do not enjoy the benefits of electricity could in this way to keep food longer and healthier, which would significantly reduce infections and food poisoning.

Solar cooling is in the service of nature conservation to reduce demand for electricity used by ordinary cooling devices.

The test device was performed in a winery in Tunisia, where they placed a large mirror from the solar collectors to absorb solar energy and using it to heat water in the tank at 200 degrees. The pair will run the cooling device to cool the water used for cooling premises.

The test was carried out in extreme conditions and a large number of experiments, cooling the rooms and buildings with solar power, and the results showed that these devices consume between 50 and 80 percent less energy than regular air conditioners.

For now, the technology is not yet available to everyone, because the cost of installing is very high – for example, one building in Austria or Germany should spend between 30 and 40 thousand Euros, which is more than double the cost of installing conventional cooling devices.

But researchers are optimistic, believing that large companies have their offices and facilities in countries with numerous sunny days still available calculation in the installation of solar refrigeration systems, especially when one bears in mind that they do not use chloroform carbon, a compound that destroys the ozone layer and is more harmful than CO2 by even 12,000 times.
