New Zealand heats up with ‘hybrid cooling’ technology
NZ’s capital city, Wellington, is warming up to the idea of using hybrid cooling to cool its capital’s cooling system.
The capital city’s cooling facility is located in a new development called Cool Space Technology.
The facility will be powered by a large thermal generator, but is set to be powered with hybrid cooling.
The city has set a target to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent by 2030 and has set up a taskforce to develop a citywide policy for carbon capture and storage (CCS).
The council also announced it is working with the Department of Conservation and the Department for the Environment and Heritage to build a large renewable energy generator.
