New generation of intelligent efficient district cooling systems

Project: Research


In Europe, different prognosis show an increase in cooling demand of almost 60% in 2030 with respect to nowadays. District cooling (DC) can play a part in satisfying this demand in a sustainable way (since can offer 5 to 10 times higher efficiency
solutions than on‐site stand‐alone distributed systems). Even if DC captures only minor portion of the prospective market, this will translate into a dramatic increase in the size of the global DC sector. INDIGO aims to develop a more efficient, intelligent and cheaper generation of DC systems by improving system planning,
control and management, anticipating the aforementioned scenario.
