With sharp rising global energy demand posing a rapid development in sustainable cooling systems is required. Hybrid adsorption cooling cycle is considered as one of the sustainable cooling systems. The present study introduces a survey of hybrid adsorption cooling systems in order to stand on its fact and clarify the future trend. The survey sectioned the hybrid adsorption systems into three sections; (i) assisted technology, (ii) application, and (iii) heat source type. The hybrid system which uses vapor compression with adsorption employing activated carbon/CO 2 pair was found to have the highest value of the coefficient of performance (COP). On the contrary, vapor compression-hybrid cooling system using activated carbon/R134a as the adsorbent/refrigerant pair has the lowest COP value and substantial research development and demonstration (RD&D) is required to meet the global challenge of energy conservation.
