The phoenix: a living example of how climate change is affecting the world
This air conditioner, built by Phoenix Air Conditioning Ltd, uses the energy generated by the sun to cool the air, making it more efficient at keeping cool.
The company says it was designed to be used in summer, when temperatures are lower than the average for the time of year.
In winter, the temperature drops to about 1,200 degrees Celsius (2,400 degrees Fahrenheit) and then rises again.
This means the cooling is done without heaters, but that is not the point.
Phoenix is an example of a large, efficient, renewable energy system.
The phoeys are the smallest, cheapest and most efficient systems in the world, which means they can be installed almost anywhere.
It also makes a huge difference to how efficiently the system is run, says Mr Meehan, because it uses a much smaller, more efficient and more efficient fuel, rather than coal.
The phoenicels power system is more efficient than a petrol-powered one, but they have to use coal for the heat.
And they need to make sure they can run the system well.
So Phoenix has designed the air conditioners so that they can burn fuel from the sun when they are in use.
The thermal energy from the heaters is converted into electrical energy and used to run the systems, using only a small amount of coal.
