What is Deep Water Cooling?
John Spacey, updated on April 04, 2017
Deep water cooling is a district cooling method that draws cold water from deep in a lake or ocean to cool buildings. Cooling is achieved by running the water through a network of pipes though each floor of a building. If the water is fresh, it is ideally fed into a city's water supply for reuse. Deep water cooling tends to be capital intensive and requires a large upfront investment. Once it's operating it uses as little as 10% of the energy consumed by traditional air conditioning, depending on the temperature of the water and distance from the buildings being cooled.
