Work Package 5 - Possibilities with more district dooling

The Work Package will make use of main findings of the cooling demands report (WP2).

The report will consider elements such as

  • district cooling (DC) definition and description of DC technologies: conventional and absorption chillers, natural, industrial sources etc
  • district cooling position on the market: statistics regarding production and capacity
  • estimation of densities range for district cooling compared to total market
  • benchmark of sufficient demand densities with existing DC markets
  • estimation of district cooling potential in Europe
  • assessment of possibilities with more District Cooling based on various options: heat driven, free cooling etc
  • assessment of increased use of District Cooling expressed as: higher security of supply, higher energy efficiency, lower CO2
