Cooling of the built environment is a relatively new and rapidly expanding market in Europe. The pressures associated with energy efficiency call for combining energy-conservation strategies as well as for energy-efficient technologies in order to reduce a building’s carbon footprint. Low-energy cooling technologies improve the users’ thermal comfort and reduce the energy demand for cooling—and often also for ventilation. However, buildings need to meet minimum requirements for the application of low-energy cooling due to the limited cooling capacity.
