Stanford scientists develop new type of solar structure that cools buildings in full sunlight

Stanford scientists develop new type of solar structure that cools buildings in full sunlight | Solar energy topic | Scoop.it

Homes and buildings chilled without air conditioners. Car interiors that don't heat up in the summer sun. Tapping the frigid expanses of outer space to cool the planet. Science fiction, you say? Well, maybe not any more.
A team of researchers at Stanford has designed an entirely new form of cooling structure that cools even when the sun is shining. Such a structure could vastly improve the daylight cooling of buildings, cars and other structures by reflecting sunlight back into the chilly vacuum of space.
