District energy is an efficient, environmentally responsible method of heating and cooling buildings. District energy systems product steam, hot water or chilled water at a central plant. The steam or water is then piped underground to individual buildings within a designated area for heating, cooling or use in industrial processes.
With headquarters outside of Boston, Mass., the 900-member IDEA was founded in 1909 comprises district heating and cooling executives, managers, engineers, consultants and equipment suppliers from 22 countries.
