Sopogy and Masdar partner to provide solar cooling solution

October 4, 2010


Abu Dhabi, UAE –October 4, 2010 – Sopogy, Inc, a leader in micro-concentrated solar power (MicroCSP™) technology development, manufacturing and installation, is providing a solar thermal collector system for a proprietary air conditioning system at Masdar City, the emerging low-carbon cleantech cluster being constructed on the outskirts of the UAE capital Abu Dhabi.

Masdar selected Sopogy’s proprietary MicroCSP solar collector technology to produce thermal energy to drive a 50-refrigeration-ton double-effect absorption chiller – a technology widely used in many parts of the world for cooling from waste heat sources.

“Sopogy’s SopoCool™ MicroCSP installation at Masdar continues to demonstrate our ability to provide affordable, innovative solar solutions worldwide. We’re extremely proud to be part of the solution in helping Masdar City become one of the world’s cleanest energy cities,” said Darren Kimura, Sopogy President and CEO.

Sopogy’s technology features its award-winning flagship SopoNova™ MicroCSP solar collector which uses mirrors to concentrate the sun’s energy on a receiver tube and heats the re-circulated heat transfer fluid within the system. Masdar will use the generated heat in conjunction with the absorption chiller to provide a renewable source of cooling for the air conditioning system of an office block at Masdar City’s site office.

“Masdar is committed to working with industry-leading technology partners such as Sopogy to help us develop the next generation of sustainable solutions that can help to address the challenges posed by our demanding sustainability goals,” said Simon Bräuniger, project manager for Masdar’s pilot plants.

Masdar means “the source” in Arabic and reflects the company’s determination to find new and creative ways to access energy at more fundamental and sustainable levels than fossil fuels – in the sun, the wind and the tides, among others. The company also seeks to extend the UAE’s leadership in the energy sector.
