Siveco to take part in District Cooling Webinars in Shenzhen & Qingdao

The Asia Pacific Urban Energy Association (APUEA) and the Danish Board of District Heating (DBDH) have invited Bruno Lhopiteau, Managing Director of Siveco China, as a panelist for two webinars focused on China District Cooling, in Shenzhen (December 8) and Qingdao (December 15).
Energy demand for cooling in China will increase from 250 TWh in 2016 to 960 TWh in 2050, becoming the world's second largest cooling market. China is one of the largest District Cooling markets in the world. However, District Cooling developments suffer from scepticism as a result of unsuccessful developments decades ago. Now it's time to turn the tide.
The China District Cooling webinars aims to provide insights in the Chinese District Cooling sector, with speeches from, utilities, solution providers, associations, and other stakeholders active in the Chinese District cooling market.
During the panel discussion, Siveco will share how maintenance can be taken into account from the design stage to ensure the efficiency of cooling systems throughout their lifecycle. He will also discuss how international standards, widely applied by Siveco in other public utilities in China (such as water & waste treatment or industrial gases), can provide practical guidelines for such projects and allow Chinese utilities to benchmark against their international counterparts. Siveco has a long history providing advanced Smart O&M solutions for district cooling projects, historically in Paris La Defense business district and most recently for the energy-efficient cooling system of Raffles City Chongqing.
