Increased Fuel Efficiency to Bolster Market Demand  

Depending on the condition of load profile and utility grid, district heating cooling systems exhibits outstanding flexibility in terms of usage of different types of energy options. Operators of district heating cooling system can switch between available sources of heat with ease in case of unexpected variations in costs of heat generation in the market. This ensures that the overall operational costs remain in check. It also assists in running the system at comparatively higher capacities by ensuring constant supply of cost-effective options of heat generation. Additionally, incentive schemes and favorable regulatory mechanisms play a major role in quicker penetration of market penetration. It also reinstates investors’ confidence in companies. These factors are anticipated to bolster growth of the district heating and cooling market in the forthcoming years.

Installation of district-wide heating and cooling systems leads to cost savings and thus it contributes towards the expansion of district heating and cooling market worldwide. Studies revealed that district heating cooling systems contribute towards a substantial drop in the overall staffing and boiler expenditures and at the same time improves performance of boilers as well. Considerable reduction in the overall quantity of fuel required to run these systems due to increased fuel efficiency also make them eco-friendly.  Furthermore, district heating cooling systems scale up quite well due to increase in the number of households, requirement of less space, and for better equipment management.  

Environmental Concerns to Drive Regional Markets

Asia Pacific is currently the leading the district heating and cooling market and it held a market share of almost 55% of the global district heating and cooling market in 2015. Japan, South Korea, and China are some of the main nations that are likely to be propelling the district heating cooling market in the region. Rising temperature levels, government initiatives encouraging the establishment of district heating and district cooling systems across municipalities, and significance of renewable sources of energy and energy efficiency are likely to spearhead growth of district heating and cooling market in this region.

Europe trailed Asia Pacific in terms of revenue share of the global district heating and cooling market. Europe district heating cooling market is likely to rise at a 5.1% CAGR over the forecast period that extends from 2016 to 2024. Low temperatures throughout the year with only a couple of months of summer have accelerated the sales of district heating in Europe in the last few years.  Numerous stringent regulations concerning the increased exploitation of renewable sources of energy and the Europe 20-20-20 targets are likely to magnify the requirement and installation of district heating and cooling systems in the European region.
