A STUDY OF THE INFLUENCE OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON DISTRICT HEATING AND COOLING IN MINATO MIRAI 21
Master's 2nd year
We assessed the influence of climate change on district heating and cooling by simulation, when the average global temperature rises by 4 °C, and considered adaptation measures. We found that the thermal demand pattern changes due to climate change and affects various factors such as energy consumption, economy, and environment. Then, we examined seawater thermal cooling as adapting measure for minimizing the influences such as an increase in exhaust heat quantity. Moreover, we examined the use of a heat storage system as adapting measure for minimizing the influences such as an increase in peak load of cold water.
