Those organising the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will keep fans and players alike cool during the tournament using carbon neutral technologies.

The games could potentially be played in 45º C heat meaning that it will be essential for the stadiums to be kept cool. In a bid to remain carbon neutral, the air conditioning uses the natural resources of the sun to provide high pressure hot water for the absorption chiller and electrical power through Photovoltaic panels.

Temperature sensors at the grounds will send electronic signals to the ABB drives ensuring more efficient energy use.

ABB, manufacturers in power and automation technologies, claim the system intended for the new stadium in Doha uses 1MW of renewable energy instead of 1.3MW of conventional energy.
