Global warming and higher prices of fuel and electricity have increased the importance of energyefficiency in the industry. Conversions of compression cooling to heat-driven cooling and introductionof industrial excess heat in district heating systems are two measures that can contribute to moresustainable energy systems. In the municipality of Södertälje there is a potential for conversion of coolingdue to the large industrial cooling loads. Heat driven cooling processes such as absorption andadsorption cooling provide a larger heat demand for combined heat and power (CHP) thus generates alarger production of electricity. The increased use of fuel resources created by the increased heat demandcan be reduced through introduction of industrial excess heat at peak loads to reduce the use of oilboilers and thereby further reduce the carbon dioxide emissions. The combination of reduction inelectricity use from compression chillers, increased electricity production in the CHP plant and increaseduse of industrial excess heat could thus reduce carbon dioxide emissions while at the same time reducingthe system cost of the municipality as a whole.
