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.
