Copenhagen plans district cooling system

8 July 2010 – The first pilot district cooling system in Denmark has been inaugurated as a first step towards a carbon dioxide-neutral cooling system to supply the businesses of Copenhagen, reports Copenhagen Energy.
 
Previously, banks and stores in the city had server rooms with cooling equipment, but now the cooling comes from a district cooling system.
 
The next system is to be located in the area around the Copenhagen City Hall and should be ready for operation in 2012/13.
 
In addition, Copenhagen Energy is planning six further projects – if these are all realized, the seven projects together will prevent the emission of 30,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.
