RESCUE Report on District Cooling and the Customers' Alternative Cost
This report discusses the complexity of calculating the different cost items and the factors influencing them for both the customers’ alternative and for District Cooling, which today is aimed mainly at the service sector. Each customer is unique and national and regional differences have to be taken into account. The price for cooling must be calculated individually for each customer’s specific needs and conditions but price ranges can be assumed from the data available. District Cooling is also defined by the varying conditions for the investment and operation of the system. For favourable conditions the District Cooling system will consist of a mix of available production possibilities, natural cooling, electrical chillers or absorption chillers. The cost for District Cooling therefore also shows a large variation.
