A district cooling and/or heating system (DCHS) distributes cooling and/or heating capacity in the form of chilled water or another medium from a central source to multiple buildings through a network of underground pipes. The project aimed to promote and highlight the growing importance of DCHS from the perspective of energy efficiency and conservation through the collection of DCHS data in driving progress toward meeting APEC’s energy intensity reduction goal. A workshop was held to share the experience and best practices of DCHS among APEC economies. This report presents a summary of the insights during the workshop.
