Different barrier for implementing district cooling such as that in Växjö in Aarhus has been identified. The most serious of these is that the taxation structure, regulations and ownership structures are significantly different in a way that does not favour replication of the technical setup.
It is concluded that continuing with sea-water chillers and/or heat pumps is advised. Also DNU type setups are worthwhile to pursue. These options may not currently be economically feasible, but appear stronger in the long run compared to the setup in Växjö which depends on high temperature waste from primarily CHP.
