District cooling

Replacing traditional air-conditioning systems by sending cold water through a network of pipes in commercial and private buildings

A district cooling system is an energy-efficient tool to supply cooling for commercial and private buildings in densely populated areas with a high demand for cooling. The district cooling system replaces a traditional air-conditioning system by sending cold water through a network of pipes. By doing so, the system can reach an efficiency rate typically five or even up to ten times that of traditional air-conditioning.

In Copenhagen, the district cooling system uses seawater as a resource to cool buildings, reducing CO₂ emissions by up to 30,000 tonnes per year.
