  • Basic Implication
  • Development Background

Concept of District Energy
District heating, district cooling, district power supply and the energy system and comprehensive integration that solve the energy demand in a district are collectively referred to as district energy. The district can be an administrative division or natural city and urban area, or a residential quarter (building complex), or a development area and park specially designated by someone.
The district energy system is one or several combinations of heating system, cooling system, hot water supply system, steam supply system and power supply system that aim at providing system solutions to full-life-cycle energy demand in urban low carbon ecology and industrial development. It makes use of the energy resource endowment in the district according to local conditions and makes organic matching and integration in combination with energy demand, so as to accomplish more with less energy and realize high energy efficiency and the sustainable development of district energy environment.
In a word, district energy refers to the process that all energy used for production and living throughout the development history of human beings is used in a scientific, rational, comprehensive and integrated manner in a specific district and undergoes energy production, conversion, supply, distribution, use and emission completely.

Implication of District Energy
Implication: high energy efficiency, low emission; do more with less energy, emission minimization.
The high energy efficiency throughout the process from secondary production, distribution, use and monitoring to emission of energy helps better dig into resource endowment stock. Also, the integrated implementation from top-level design, planning, design, investment, construction to operation and maintenance achieves full-process energy conservation from the source, process, stage and details.
Key points: Analysis of energy resource endowment according to local conditions, simulation of local energy demand; full-process control and implementation, and achieve consistent taste, parallel temperature, ladder-form utilization, integrated complementation, multiple integration.
Scope: Whole process and whole industry chain
Whole process: Energy production, conversion, supply, distribution, use and emission.
Whole industry chain: Planning, feasibility study, design, construction, management, operation, service, course setting and talent cultivation.
User: Energy for industrial, architectural and transportation use

Promotion by International Organizations
In 2012, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon proposed the "Sustainable Energy for All" global initiative which aimed at providing an action framework for sustainable energy transformation through three complementary goals, i.e. achieving the overall popularization of modern energy service, doubling the energy efficiency and doubling the proportion of renewable energy in global energy shares by 2030. At the UN Climate Summit held in New York in 2014, Ban Ki-moon announced the introduction of global district energy initiative once more. On June 29, 2015 when the Annual Meeting of International Forum on International Ecological Civilization was held in Guiyang, China, the United Nations issued the Chinese version of a report titled Urban District Energy: Fully Motivate and Release the Potential of Energy Efficiency and the Potential of New Energy, which selected 45 demonstration cities for district energy around the world including Anshan, China to provide reference and guidance for urban energy utilization and transformation of different countries. The United Nations Environment Programme listed China as one of the four demonstration countries in the world, and will select four to five cities as the pilots for district energy to explore a new road for energy efficiency financing.
Founded in 1909 with a history of more than 100 years, the International District Energy Association made outstanding contribution to the development and exploration of district energy. On June 20, 2016, it organized the 107th Annual Meeting on International District Energy in St. Paul, U.S.

District Energy Development
District energy starts late in China, but develops fast with great potential. In response to energy revolution and ecological civilization construction, the district energy, as an important measure and entry point for energy conservation and emission reduction and reducing haze, has been widely used in the construction of a number of districts (such as Hengqin of Zhuhai, Qianhai of Shenzhen, Zhujiang New Town of Guangzhou, Zhongguancun West Village of Beijing, Beijing Life Science Park, Wuhan Financial Harbour) and accumulated some experience, and on this basis, it has been gradually promoted and applied nationwide.
Denmark, by virtue of the district energy, has realized GDP doubling without additional energy consumption. It will soon publish the White Paper on District Energy in Denmark.
The U.S.A, Japan and some other developed countries have also achieved sustainable green and low-carbon development by using the district energy.
