What are District Cooling Systems?

  • District Cooling Systems produce chilled water, steam or hot water at a central plant and then pipe that energy out (either underground or over rooftops) to buildings for air conditioning, space heating and water heating.
  • As a result, these buildings don't require their own chillers, air conditioners, boilers or furnaces.
  • They are considered to be highly efficient to address each of the challenges like high capital and operating costs, reliability, flexibility and environmental sustainability while meeting their comfort and process cooling and heating needs.
  • District Cooling uses only 50 per cent of primary energy consumption for cooling urban building n compared to other cooling systems.
  • This also reduces carbon emissions.
