The United States expends large amount of energy on air conditioning for residential and commercial buildings every year, and solar thermal air conditioning currently makes up a small fraction of this. Of the 22 projects that this presentation focuses on, 7 uses flat plate technology, and 15 are less than 5 years old. Total installed capacity in the US for solar thermal air conditioning in 2010 was 704 tons, according to the presentation.
