The India Cooling Action Plan (ICAP) issued in March 2019 aims to reduce cooling demand by 25-30% and reduce cooling energy requirements by 25-40% by 2037-38 from 2017-18 levels. ICAP targets efficiency improvement and material substitution and related actions that will yield incremental improvements. The problem being so critical and imminent, it requires a radically different approach – incremental improvement in the efficiency of room AC units and better construction materials will not help to mitigate this challenge. District energy systems are being successfully implemented in many parts of the world and have evolved as a matured technology. In the Indian context, the district cooling system (DCS) presents an opportunity to address the space cooling challenge effectively. Considering this, an actionable implementation plan needs to be developed focusing on both greenfield and brownfield projects along with commercially viable business models for providing cooling as a service. Government should also come up with policy and regulation both at central and state levels focusing on financing options, incentives and tariff policy for providing a push for adoption of DCS and attract investment in the sector.
