7.4. Hybrid Cooling and Heating Systems

In solar thermal systems with large capacity, both solar cooling and solar heating are provided synergistically, yielding a complete annual utilization. During the cold season, solar heat serves for space heating. During the warm season, solar heat is converted into useful cold by means of sorption cooling devices, avoiding overheating of the solar thermal system. There are already several hybrid systems using the basic closed sorption cycle for the heat and cold productions.
