Energy supply struggles : – Energy cost 3x together with impending recession causing increase of >50% to guests
– Grid instability and/or powering off grid locations
– Storage and efficiency of alternative energy sources
Continuous and pro-longed use of air conditioning for arid conditions
Humidity related issues – mold and associated maintenance issues
A sustainable and efficient thermal storage solution, which can reduce cost and maintenance to hospitality operators
Solar energy is used to freeze PCM in a thermal storage® solution. Continuous freezing and melting causes heat transfer which in turn, cools the environment
Built in humidity control captures excess water automatically which is evacuated via bathroom drains
24sqm of installed rooftop solar panels traps solar energy via a standard heat pump which freezes the PCM.
PCM is contained within 20 stacked vertical “floor units”® hidden below the slab or behind an outside wall
Cool air is released through vents placed at ground level in the bedroom and kitchen area, whilst hot air is sucked back into the system via vents in the ceiling in the same areas.
A room controller measures and automatically adjusts air parameters, time, solar activity, air quality and temperature and PCM loading.
Net positive energy outcome with High Return on Investment (ROI) – 30% of the solar energy generated is required to cool the environment for 1 to 2 days.
– Excess 70% solar can be used for lighting/stored in batteries or sold back to the grid
Clean and sustainable energy source – State of art design, featuring:
– Built in humidity control (condensation can be evacuated or captured)
– Incorporated air circulation system
– Silent and sleek design whilst providing for an ambient environment
Durability – PCM has a life expectancy of 50 years
Standard easily sourced components
Safe – Non-toxic, recyclable and non-flammable
A robust corporate social responsibility plan
The Future of Sustainable Cooling for Positive Energy Buildings
