In the race to save energy, using a passive cooling method that requires no electricity and is built right into your house could save even chilly areas of the US some cash. Now, researchers at the University of Maryland and the University of Colorado have harnessed wood to help solve the problem of finding a passive way for buildings to dump heat that is sustainable and strong. They showed that this specially processed wood has optical properties that radiate heat away. The results of this study were published May 9 in the journal Science.
