The possibility of solar cooling technologies is simulated and discussed in this work. Cooling system application for a six-floor university building in Surabaya Indonesia was taken as a case study. Two different solar technologies systems were designed and compared: (i) photovoltaic powered cooling system, and (ii) solar thermal absorption cooling system. Economic analysis was carried out based on the economic key-figures as well as the CO2 emission analysis. Based on the results gained in the profitability analysis, the most economically feasible system is solar thermal absorption cooling system due to the good agreement between solar radiation andcooling demand. Besides, this systems allows the maximum CO2 emissions savings.
