Abstract

Starting from the results of a Life Cycle Assessment of small solar assisted heat driven chillers, the application of such methodologyhas been extended to systems with a conventional compression chiller assisted by a photovoltaic plant (PV). This study aims to provide acomprehensive compared investigation of these two families of solar assisted cooling systems (with solar thermal or PV). Results indicatethat, in many cases, the systems with the PV grid connected plant performed best. In addition, two more configurations were investigatedto further define the PV assisted systems, which minimise their interaction with the grid through the use of electricity storages. Thesesystems performed worse than the PV grid connected systems and the solar thermal assisted systems in nearly all the analysed cases. 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
