Coffee shop chain Costa has launched a new ‘Eco Pod’ cafe concept, incorporating an array of innovative energy-saving technologies that could have a huge impact on the future of sustainable building design in the hospitality sector.

CoolairAustralia has installed green technologies for creating cooling & heating outdoor comfort zones saving energy more than 90% for cooling & heating!

More specifically CoolairAustralia’s Radiant heaters & Portable cooling units:

  1. consume only a small proportion of the electricity consumed by a comparable refrigerated or heating  systems. A CoolairAustralia’s series portable  air conditioner uses up to 90% less electricity than refrigerated units and up to 40% less than conventional ducted evaporative air conditioning systems.
  2. Therefore less fossil fuels like coal and natural gas will be consumed in the production of electricity and less electricity generation infrastructure will be required.
  3. Lower Peak Energy usage means lower wiring costs, potentially useable with solar energy and less requirement for additional power stations.
