Goal

The goal of this project was to provide guidance to designers of district cooling systems in identifying the best options for integrating district cooling with CHP and district heating.

Case Studies

Preparation of case studies which illustrate the costs, energy efficiency, and evironmental results for a variety of configurations.

The case studies covered systems in the following locations:

    Gothenburg
    Chicago
    Trenton
    St. Paul
    Germany
 

Parameters

Each case has its own particular quantifying economic, technical and environmental parameters. The analysis covered by the project report presents the capital and operating costs for alternative CHP and chiller technologies.

Design Guide

A design guide was developed that can be used for comparing alternative equipment configurations relative to energy efficiency, environmental impacts and costs.

The project report covers the following topics in detail:

Thermodynamic Issues in Integrating District Cooling and CHP The thermodynamic fundamentals of CHP and cooling are covered so as to provide a conceptual foundation for later quantification of the efficiency of alternative cooling/CHP options.
