Sustainable cooling for a warming planet - An industrial scale cooling solution that is highly efficient and leading to significant reduction in carbon emissions while ensuring resilience.

As the planet warms, global demand for air-conditioning is projected to triple over the next 30 years, much of it in developing countries. Providing cooling is expensive, demanding power generation surges during the day for workplaces and at night and the weekend for residential spaces.

Traditional air conditioning systems are inefficient by design and district cooling is the answer for developers and end-users searching for a sustainable, reliable and highly efficient source of cooling. When applied appropriately, district cooling is more energy-efficient than traditional cooling solutions, more cost-effective for customers, and it reduces peak power requirements. Moreover, district cooling works well with solar and other increasingly common renewable-energy technologies.
