District Cooling Central Plants provide sustainable cooling to the World Cup Stadium in addition to Schools, Universities, Educational institutes and other community buildings. The district cooling system used in stadium cooling is an innovative and environmentally friendly technology, and one of the most efficient and energy-saving systems. It saves about 40% of electricity by reducing electricity generation and distribution capabilities, as well as saving 98% of potable water through the use of treated sewage (TSE) water for the condenser cooling. Average renewable energy produced is 5 MWH per day through solar panels at Education City which is contributing about 1.0% of average Electricity demand of Central Plants at Education City.
