Which climates are best for passive cooling technologies?

Credit: Carlos Coimbra. WASHINGTON, D.C., June 25, 2019 -- A group of University of California, San Diego researchers set out to gain a better understanding of the thermal balance of power plants and surfaces, like heliostat mirrors or solar panels, when exposed to both solar (shortwave) and atmospheric (longwave) radiation.

Certain climates are better suited for passive cooling technologies

have investigated the role that cloud cover and relative humidity play when surfaces such as solar panels are exposed to shortwave and longwave radiation. To identify the exact role water plays, the team needed to determine how much heat can be rejected to outer space and how much is radiated back by the atmosphere.
