I know that Germany isn't actually part of the south, but they have learned how to do hydronic (radiant) cooling, by circulating cooled water through ceiling panels. There was an issue with the possibility of condensation, but it was resolved by automatically monitoring the temperature and humidity of the room, calculating dew point, and adjusting water temp to keep it from crossing into the dew point.

Their energy costs are 2X what ours runs, so they have to be much more intelligent about how they use it.
