Reduced need for infrastructure expansion has enhanced the adoption of free cooling technology

The free cooling technology adoption has been significantly influenced by the growing deployment of renewable energy technologies, decline in the use of environmentally harmful refrigerants and reduced need for upgrading the electrical infrastructure. The technology involves the use of cold water or cool ambient air collected from water bodies such as lakes, rivers, oceans, and seas. The cold water is pumped to the production unit and then transferred to the district cooling network for space cooling across various applications. The technology adoption is influenced by relatively lower emissions emitted by the technology and availability of flowing water streams. In addition, the changing climatic condition and expanding Tier II & III cities will boost the district cooling market share.

Rapid urbanization across the developing nations is driving the residential applications

Robust urban area development primarily across the developing nations along with infrastructure expansion plans in Tier II & III cities favored the adoption of DC technology across residential application. Ongoing adoption of small-scale systems across villas, apartments and high-rise buildings along with upsurge in demand for sustainable, smart and efficient cooling technologies will complement the market outlook. In addition, increasing investments for designing of energy-efficient infrastructure coupled with the strict regulatory directive & norms pertaining to sustainable building codes have provided opportunities for market scenario.

Increasing utilization of waste heat has favored the adoption of absorption cooling technology

The increasing use of waste heat and hot streams for generating energy has significantly strengthened the adoption of absorption cooling technology. The product involves the use of waste incineration, CHP, and industrial waste heat to generate energy. In addition, it dissolves the vapor in an absorbent and transfers the resulting product to a high-pressure environment through a pump with low power consumption. It does not use environmentally-damaging refrigerants thus favoring the industry penetration. High power costs, excessive availability of low-cost waste stream and reduced carbon emissions are some of the prominent features that will propel the technology adoption.

Favorable government policies toward energy efficient technologies has fueled the North America district cooling market demand

North America district cooling industry is primarily concentrated across urban areas owing to the high penetration of commercial building structures and growing high income group. Accelerating investments pertaining to the development of residential & commercial establishments coupled with adoption of sustainable energy efficiency targets will positively influence the business outlook. In addition, the renewable energy targets and emission control norms instituted by the regulatory authorities will enhance the investments across the market. Furthermore, rapid technological advancements and increasing spending on R&D have further led to the expansion of DC systems across the region.
