REnewable Smart Cooling for Urban Europe

Solutions developed

The aim of the proposed project is to address key challenges to the further development and implementation of district cooling in order to overcome its small market share; thereby enabling local communities to reap the environmental and economic benefits of this mature technology.

Main results

Within the project, a Support Package consisting of a methodology, toolset and practical guidance for policy makers, energy planners and technical staff has been provided and pilot implemented alongside a number of cities and local governments that will assist municipalities and local utilities in recognising the benefits that DC can offer, and to assess the potential viability of a DC system in their location.
