In addition, increasing investments toward infrastructural development across the emerging economies will positively impact the product demand.

District Heating & Cooling Market, By Energy Source

CHP district heating & cooling market will grow over 6% by 2024. Integration of power & thermal generation, simplified installation and low CO2 emissions are some of the underline factors which will encourage the product adoption. Higher operational efficiencies and improved product capabilities will further compliment the business growth. In 2017, Dall Energy started the construction of a 6 MW CHP plant in Sindal, Denmark. The plant will produce 5 MW heat and 800 kW of electricity.

Free cooling technology was valued over USD 9 billion in 2017. High flexibility & reliability of systems, ability to use waste energy as a derivative, acoustic attenuation and reduced need for infrastructural expansion are some of the key factors which will drive the market. The technology adoption is further favoured by reduced emissions on account of decline in the peak power demand and increasing adoption of sustainable technologies.

District Heating & Cooling Market, By Application

Residential sector is set to grow owing to stringent regulatory mandates introduced by the government organizations toward building emissions and conventional heating & cooling systems. Increasing penetration of the small-scale DHC systems across Tier-II & Tier-III cities will propel the business growth. In February 2016, the European Union proposed the “EU heating & cooling strategy” to cater to the exploring issues and challenges and provide sustainable and energy efficient solutions to the member nations.

Commercial district heating & cooling market is projected to exceed USD 150 billion by 2024. Shifting focus toward the construction of green buildings along with increasing adoption of sustainable building standards and codes will encourage the product penetration. Accelerating investments toward real-estate industry on account of flourishing service sector will complement the business outlook.
