In the paper the authors present possibilities of use two-phase heat-conducting devices at cooling technologies for PV and PV/T solar cooling and air-conditioning. Three ways to improve heat conductive properties of heat pipes and thermosyphons with help of nanotechnologies are considered: use of nanofluids, application of nanocoatings on heat loaded surfaces and polymer composites with nanoparticles producing. A mini bubbles generation of the working fluid inside the transparent thermosyphon evaporator with nanocoating under the solar radiation influence was observed. Nanotechnologies allow to intensify heat transfer processes and reduce energy losses in original designs of heat pipes and thermosyphons.
