Passive radiative cooling is one of the methods used to reduce energy consumption and protect the environment. Passive cooling includes technologies and design solutions to cool buildings with minimal energy consumption. This technology is considered to be cheap with simple techniques, that can ensure comfort in the building in regions having hot climate. In addition, this technology can also be used for the preservation of agricultural products and other materials at low temperature. However, this study indicates the current state and an analytical review of the scientific and technical literature on passive daytime and night radiative cooling systems. Data are collected in tables that can be used to select night, day and/or night-day radiator coatings for their application in passive radiative cooling system technology.

Keywords: microclimate, thermal comfort, equivalent temperature, life support systems.
