The duo presented a cooling project entitled “The Radiative-Heat-Recovering (RHR) Glass.” It showcases a four-item design that altogether acts as an energy-absorbing insulation system, thereby reducing the total heat gain of a building while supplying energy for its own cooling system.

In addition, this groundbreaking integration of transparent solar tube collectors and vacuum-insulated glasses gives the RHR glass three main competitive advantages over existing cooling and building technologies -- it is versatile, extractive, and sustainable.

More than 300 groups submitted their applications, in which, three were shortlisted to present at the Country Finals.
