Urban water networks as an alternative source for district heating and emergency heat-wave cooling

Xiaofeng Guo and Martin Hendel, 2017

Three emergency cold recovery techniques are presented as a response to heat-waves: subway station cooling, ice production for individual cooling, and “heat-wave shelter” cooling in association with pavement-watering. The cold generation potential of each approach is assessed with a special consideration for mains water temperature sanitary limitations. Finally, technical obstacles and perspectives are discussed.
