SOLAR AIR CONDITIONING-TURBO ENERGY LIMITED, CHENNAL
Green buildings have begun to develop in many areas throughout India implementing a number of methods of sustainability and ranging from the geothermal insulation to solar power air conditioning units. Turbo Energy Limited (TEL) in Chennai, India is utilizing the radiant energy emitted from the sun to control and condition the air in the building. The conditioning of the air is done by the means of passive solar, solar thermal energy conversion and photovoltaic conversion. This was accomplished by incorporating a “90-TR hot water fired VAM system” which aided in the reduction of Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) electrical load by nearly 117 kW. The infrastructure has a number of solar parabolic dishes that reflect solar radiance and generate pressurized hot water at a temperature of 140. The heated water is passed onto a Pressurized Hot Water Fired Vapor Absorption Chiller, which generates chilled water of which will be use for the air conditioners.
