District Cooling

District Cooling Meaning: the efficiency definition

District Cooling (DC) systems generate chilled water at a central plant and pipe the water to area buildings and the overall district to provide air conditioning. Centrally-located facilities should be custom-designed to adequately meet the specific cooling loads required by the premises served. Sin[..]
