This report discusses the EU27 cooling market today, 2020 and 2030. In the scope lies also an estimation of the District Cooling market. Based on the assumption that District Cooling is expected to get a recognition of its environmental benefits prognoses for 2020 and 2030 based on three different scenarios were conducted. The RESCUE
(Renewable Smart Cooling for Urban Europe) project duration is too short to register any development, to establish a new District Cooling system generally takes 3 to 4 years from feasibility study until start‐up of the first operations. The results from the RESCUE project on the District Cooling market may therefore be only observed in the future.
