deep lake water cooling
Deep lake water cooling scheme for Toronto.
Deep lake water cooling is the use of cold water piped from a lake bottom for cooling. Where available, it provides an efficient, renewable substitute for air conditioning which requires expensive, peak demand electrical generation and, typically, the burning of fossil fuels. Like geothermal energy and unlike many other forms of renewable energy, water-cooling taps a reliable supply because lake-bottom water is a year-round constant 4°C.
