ASHRAE DISTRICT COOLING
Owner’s Guide for Buildings Served by District Cooling
|Publication Date:||1 January 2019|
The purpose of this guide is to help building owners understand what district cooling is and why they should consider it when deciding how to meet the cooling needs of their building(s). The guide also explains what is different about buildings that are served by district cooling when compared to buildings that meet their cooling need with on-site cooling equipment. High-level guidance on designing buildings for service with district cooling that the building owner should make his designer aware of is provided, and references that the designer may refer to for more detailed information are also provided. Dealing with the issues of retrofitting buildings previously not served by district cooling to district cooling service is also covered.
