Industry: ban on cooling water discharge if water temperatures exceed 28˚C
Utilities: no new demand peak in electricity
All: less CO2
Sufficiency of passive measures?
What if industry has less waste heat in future?
A centralized cooling grid in combination with aquifers or sea water?
Will there be efficient, smaller scale absorption coolers?
