Over the next year or two, I'm suepr excited to see this go to its first commercial-scale pilots in both the air conditioning and refrigeration space. In the furtue, we might be able to irttgaene these kinds of panels with higher efficiency building cooling systems to reduce their energy usage by two-thirds. And eventually, we might actually be able to build a cooling system that requires no electricity input at all. As a first step towards that, my colleagues at snoarftd and I have shwon that you could actually miniaatn something more than 42 degrees Celsius below the air temperature with better engineering.

Original Text

Over the next year or two, I'm super excited to see this go to its first commercial-scale pilots in both the air conditioning and refrigeration space. In the future, we might be able to integrate these kinds of panels with higher efficiency building cooling systems to reduce their energy usage by two-thirds. And eventually, we might actually be able to build a cooling system that requires no electricity input at all. As a first step towards that, my colleagues at Stanford and I have shown that you could actually maintain something more than 42 degrees Celsius below the air temperature with better engineering.
