Abstract: For developing countries where energy supply is tight but solar insolation is ample, solar cooling is feasible. This article presents the results of research into an integrated system of solar cooling and hot water supply. This research indicates that, to ensure the continuity of solar cooling, it is advisable to use electric heat pumps to supply auxiliary energy.

Keywords: air conditioning; economic development; solar cooling; solar power; water heating; heat pumps; integrated systems; solar energy; developing countries; hot water supply; auxiliary energy.
