The changing global energy landscape faces a variety of challenges in providing the energy infrastructure needed to meet the electricity, heating, and cooling needs of an energy-driven world. A great deal of attention has been paid to addressing the challenges on the electricity side, but the thermal side does not get the attention it needs. District energy (DE) systems are local energy networks that provide multiple buildings with hot water/steam ("district heating") and/or chilled water ("district cooling"). DE systems are recognized worldwide for advancing social, environmental, urban sustainability and economic development objectives, while providing economic value to the communities, cities, campuses and districts they serve.
In June, 2017, IDEA hosted a one-day workshop at its recent 108th Annual Conference & Trade Show in Scottsdale, AZ to review the content of this report. The workshop was recorded in full for public viewing.
