Wind more effective than cold air at cooling rooms naturally — ScienceDaily

The effectiveness of non-mechanical, low-energy methods for moderating temperature and humidity has been evaluated in a series of experiments by researchers from the University of Cambridge. The researchers found that a temperature difference between inside and outside has a remarkably small effect on how well a room is ventilated when ventilation is primarily driven by […]

This humidity digester breathes in atmospheric water and exhales energy — ScienceDaily

Integrating a super moisture-absorbent gel with light-active materials, researchers in Singapore have developed a humidity digester to dry the ambient air while generating energy. The method, presented November 20 in the journal Joule, is a green alternative to air conditioners with a trick — pulling water out of thin air. Like plants, artificial photosynthetic devices, […]
