White paint reduces air conditioning demand
A team of researchers has developed a radiative cooling paint that keeps surfaces more than 1.7 °C cooler than their ambient surroundings (at noon).
Researchers at Purdue University have developed a radiative cooling paint that maintains a surface temperature lower than ambient under direct sunlight.
“Heat-rejecting” paints are already available on the market. They reflect only 80-90% of sunlight....
