The program



The workshop aims to provide professionals, engineers and students with the background required for implementing Radiative Cooling technology in Kuwait to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) and reduce energy consumption in Kuwait’s residential buildings.

Radiative cooling is an effective way to reduce heat in buildings. Its concept can be summarized in losing heat by thermal radiation to outer space, namely, long-wave infrared radiation (LWIR). Along with emitting thermal radiation, radiative cooling (RC) materials absorb the incoming heat energy and reflect it to outer space. The utilization of these materials can potentially reduce the size of the air-conditioning systems required hence reduce its electrical energy consumption. It is applicable in high-ambient temperature countries like Kuwait. In this research, the use of RC materials was investigated in improving indoor air quality (IAQ) and reducing energy consumption in Kuwaiti residential buildings.
