Cool-phase is a low energy cooling, ventilation and heat recovery system that reduces the running costs of buildings while creating a fresh and healthy indoor environment without compressors or hazardous coolants. The system uses intelligently controlled phase change material (PCM) to actively ventilate and cool buildings, maintaining temperatures within the comfort zone, while radically reducing energy consumption by up to 90% compared to conventional cooling systems. Two Cool-phase units were installed in the Bryant building and consumed 197.6 KWh of electricity between 25th January and 2nd September 2013. Assuming a standard electricity tariff of 0.11£/KWh, that amounts to total energy costs of £21.74, or 70p a week.
