The aim of this study is the evaluation of the economic and technical viability for the installation of a solar air conditioning system based on parabolic solar concentrators and adsorption technology, in an existent building. As case study was selected a bright star university located in elbrega city- Libya. Besides air conditioning, this system is also used for domestic hot water production .This solution enables the system use throughout the year in order to maximize the investment and reducing environmental pollution resulting from the use of fossil fuels in energy production .Results show that the implementation of these systems is feasible for the Libya reality and the climatic conditions enjoyed by most Libyan cities in terms of the intensity of solar radiation and most of the land is predominantly desert.
