SkyCool Systems is developing a product, SkyCool Panels, that will make air conditioning (AC) and refrigeration systems more efficient. AC & refrigeration systems represent a critical part of our global infrastructure, and running cooling systems consumes 17% of all electricity produced globally and result in 10% of all greenhouse gas emissions.  Using the panels will reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions associated with running air conditioning and refrigeration systems, making our planet a better place to live.  The core technology in the panels was developed at Stanford University and they can be used to increase the efficiency of the standard air conditioner or refrigeration system by as much as 20%.
