Abstract

Building energy consumption will likely increase in the future due to enhanced living standards and greater use of air-conditioning. This article reviews the technologies associated with evaporative passive cooling including roof surface evaporative cooling, evaporative cooling walls, and downdraft evaporative cooling in buildings. Our intent is to attract architects and building engineers to the energy-saving benefits of incorporating passive evaporative cooling in building designs.
