Abstract The concept of using a solar pond to provide air conditioning for a typical small family Qatari house is developed. Though the idea seems appealing for a number of reasons, the design study shows it to he technically feasible but not cost effective. To meet 100% of the cooling load from March till December, the solar pond area needed is 4-5 times the floor area of the air-conditioned space. For space cooling, solar energy cannot compete with conventional sources at today's oil prices. en_US
