In search of thermal comfort, over the years, various techniques have been developed to adapt to the conditions of the enclosures, depending on the region and the activity carried out. Thus, this project seeks to evaluate the radiative sky cooling potential for various areas of Panama. This evaluation will be carried out by developing a simplified mathematical model based on meteorological data. An uncertainty-sensibility analysis of the model was also carried out to highlight the critical parameters. Radiative sky cooling systems have been shown to be susceptible to cloudiness and humidity. With a tropical climate, Panama is critical to consider these two variables when developing the simplified mathematical model. Another aspect to consider when estimating the cooling potential will be the hours of the day when there is no solar radiation.
