Adapted and additional cooling of buildings
Cooling of buildings is needed due to increasing average temperature and number of heat days. Homes of people especially in urban areas have to be adopted to higher summer temperature. It exists the classic air conditioning and energy efficient cooling systems including systems like passive cooling, based on renewable energies.
