At SkyCool Systems, our mission is to deliver sustainable, energy-efficient cooling solutions to customers interested in reducing energy costs and carbon footprint.

We’ve developed a thin film coating technology that can cool below the ambient air temperature with no electricity input, and without evaporating water. The films can stay cooler than the air temperature, even under direct sunlight. We apply the film to rooftop panels and integrate them with air conditioning and refrigeration systems. The panels can be used as an add-on to air conditioning and refrigeration systems and in some circumstances even replace an air condensing unit. Our technology is accelerating the transition to a cleaner and more sustainable future.
