Solar power ACs could be next big thing in Pakistan

By Waqas Naeem

ISLAMABAD: With a serious power crisis and rising fuel prices, Pakistan’s industry appears to be looking toward alternative solutions to overcome its energy needs. The industry’s predicament also seems to have piqued the interest of foreign companies trying to find new markets for their eco-friendly, energy-efficient products.

One such example is the Chinese multinational Midea Commercial Air Conditioner (CAC), which has announced it will be distributing three new “green, energy-efficient” solutions for the Pakistani Heating, Ventilation and Air-conditioning (HVAC) industry.

The products, which fall under Midea’s MDV brand, include a solar-powered air-conditioner, a DC Inverter Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system and a “Dual Storage Full Falling-Film Centrifugal Chiller.”

Geothermal heating

News: Orly Airport, in France is embarking on a program to extract geothermal energy from underground to slash it’s heating bills. Two shafts will be drilled on the airports perimeter to access a water table warmed by the earth’s core. The water from these deep shafts will be drawn up by natural pressure; the water will emerge at the surface at 75 degrees C (165 F). The water will then be injected into the airports heating system; once the heat has been extracted the water will then be pumped back underground.
