Abstract

Heat-driven air-conditioning systems are systems that use low-grade thermal energy like solar energy and waste heat rather than electricity to cool the air. These systems can produce significant energy savings, have low global warming and ozone depletion potential, and also ensure higher indoor air quality. This chapter aims to disseminate the fundamentals of the technologies of heat-driven air conditioning to the wide spectrum of people and to review the latest developments in this area.
