Solar Cooling and Heating Market Trends

Solar heating andcooling technologies are a simple, carbon-neutral and affordable way tomeet the much of the power needs of the world’s population. Alreadythese technologies are expanding rapidly, without the policy support of"sexier" PV and wind technology. However, there are significant barriers to be overcome, one of which is a lack of public understanding in manynations.
