The Power of District Energy

News Detail




District Energy in Cities Initiative

District energy systems are networks of underground insulated pipes that pump hot or cold water to multiple buildings in a district, neighbourhood or city. Such systems create synergies between the production and supply of heating, cooling, domestic hot water and electricity, and can be integrated with municipal systems such as power, sanitation, sewage treatment, transport and waste. This enables integrated energy grids that fuel low-carbon, energy efficient heating and cooling, and maximize local renewable resources.
