Asia-Pacific District Cooling Market – Overview
District cooling is an energy-efficient method of air conditioning that centralizes the production and distribution of chilled water to cool multiple buildings. A central cooling plant generates chilled water, which is then circulated through a network of insulated pipes to various buildings for cooling purposes. This system reduces energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and maintenance costs compared to individual cooling units in each building. District cooling is particularly beneficial in densely populated urban areas and regions with high cooling demands, promoting sustainability and environmental conservation by optimizing the use of resources for cooling while offering economic advantages for both providers and consumers.
