IIT-Guwahati researchers design electricity-free radiative cooler

Guwahati, July 4: Researchers at IIT-Guwahati have designed an affordable and efficient passive' radiative cooling system that does not require electricity to operate. This 'Radiative Cooler' coating material is an electricity-free' cooling system as it can be applied on the rooftops and functions both during day and night time to provide an alternate to the conventional air-conditioners, an IIT-Guwahati release said on Monday. Passive radiative cooling systems operate by emitting the heat absorbed from the surrounding in the form of infrared radiations that can pass through the atmosphere before getting...
