Environmental degradation, depletingconventional energy resources, and explodingworld population are indeed serious issues.Development of clean energy resources togetherwith clean technologies for human comfort is awonderful hunian creativity. This paper presentsa developed system of combined solar thermaland electric desiccant cooling system. The totalperformance of the whole system as presentedshows the thermal energy supplied to the system,the thermal energy transferred to the desiccantcooling system, and the performance of thedesiccant cooling system. Based on the resultsthe system consumed 105.80MJ of thermalenergy for one day operation. The coefficient ofperformance of the desiccant cooling system(COP) is 0.25.
