The building sector accounts for more than 40% of the global energy consumption. This consumption may be lowered by reducing building energy requirements and using renewable energy in building energy supply systems. Therefore, a nearly zero-energy building, incorporating a solar heating and cooling system, was designed and built in Beijing, China. The system included a 35.17 kW cooling 10-RT absorption chiller, an evacuated tube solar collector with an aperture area of 320.6 m

, two hot-water storage tanks with capacities of 10 m

and 30 m

, respectively, two cold-water storage tanks both with a capacity of 10 m

, and a 281 kW cooling tower. Heat pump systems were used as a backup. At a value of 25.2%, the obtained solar fraction associated with the cooling load was close to the design target of 30%. In addition, the daily solar collector efficiency and the chiller coefficient of performance COP varied from 0.327 to 0.507 and 0.49 to 0.70, respectively.
