Green Air Conditioning

Green Air Conditioning

By: vaneesha gupta

During hot seasons, a typical building uses 40 percent of its energy to cool air. On top of that, six percent of all the electricity produced in the U.S. is spent chilling the indoors. Professor Ernest Chua, a professor at the National University of Singapore, and his colleagues, have created a new air conditioner that uses a tiny fraction of the energy consumed by a traditional air conditioner. As a bonus, it produces purified drinking water. I found this article interesting because it shows that something that is used everyday can be made more energy efficient.

This article relates to engineering because it involves planning, constructing, and designing.
