District cooling is the future of cooling

Date: 14 February 2013

At current levels, 70 percent of annual peak electricity consumption is used by air conditioning units to meet the cooling demands in Saudi Arabia and the demand is expected to nearly triple by 2030. It is expected that by year 2030, 1.5 million barrels of oil per day will be needed to power air-conditioning units. Prudent developers and authorities are turning to District Cooling (DC) technology as it has proven, over a period of time, that it is most cost effective technology for cooling buildings. As an economical and sustainable solution for project stakeholders, DC will tackle the surge in demand for electricity requirements thereby conserving 70% to 90% of this constricted power supply which will pave a path to an environment friendly and energy saving system in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
