Local cooling saves energy
In systems based on decentralised cooling, water is distributed to one or more buildings – typically via the existing district heating network. The hot water then powers absorption chillers, which produce district heating locally and distribute it to the end users. Installations of this type are typically fitted in large buildings with high cooling requirements, and where there is no existing district cooling network.
Decentralised cooling makes it possible to achieve a constantly cool indoor climate, which can be operated irrespective of any disruptions to operations in the supply network.
