SOLAIR ENERGY - HVACR system uses up to 20% of a country total electricity. HVACR will have a huge impact on Global Warming as developing nations start using it more and more. SOLAIR is a thermal solar compressor that uses a modified Stirling engine working as a compressor and engine simultaneously. The disruptive innovation was to use the refrigeration gas as the working gas in the Stirling, so as the pistons move in the engine, it pressurises the refrigeration gas, leaving the work of the engine free to be used in electricity generation.
SOLAIR AUTOMOTIVE - Today's VEHICLES AC compressor uses the power of the engine to pressurise the refrigeration gas, using in the process up to 20% more fuel, thus impacting on green house effect. SOLAIR AUTOMOTIVE is a thermal compressor that uses the heat from the exhaust tailpipe in a modified Stirling engine working as the compressor for the AC. Since there is no load on the vehicle engine, all cars (even small engines, 1.000cc. or less) can have AC with no impact on fuel consumption when in use!
The disruptive innovation, in both solutions, was to use the refrigeration gas as the working gas in the Stirling engine, so as the pistons move in the engine, it pressurises the refrigeration gas.
SOLAIR for HVACR will potentially remove HVACR from the grid turning it into a TRUE GREEN solution powered by the sun (CSP). The solution can be placed anywhere, even in remote areas with no grid, since cold and electricity will be generated simultaneously. Isolated communities need electricity and refrigeration in order to improve living standards and create new business opportunity in the local economy and to keep goods viable for longer periods. Medicine and drugs and vaccines conservation will benefit by having refrigeration and electricity in one full package HVACR in developing nations may have a huge impact on green house effect since most of the electricity today is generated by fossil fuels (any type). By having a SOLAR compressor with electricity co-generation, these impacts are avoided.
SOLAIR AUTOMOTIVE is a thermal VEHICLE AC compressor that takes the AC compressor load from the vehicle engine, thus eliminating the 20% increase in fuel consumption when using AC in the vehicle. Reduction in fuel consumption will improve air quality in large cities and reduces green house effects. Small vehicles will be able to have AC without more detrimental impact or engine performance reduction.
