Abstract The information in the report identifies and describes district heating and cooling opportunities for downtown Buffalo. It reviews technical and economic data necessary to building such a system, including a market study of how many buildings would use the system, energy price projections, regulations governing such systems, ownership options, expansion proposals and a plan of implementation. Certain buildings were selected for a survey to develop energy-use profiles. All evaluations were made within the context of the downtown energy-use patterns. This phase one project concludes that it is feasible to build a pilot-scale system for downtown Buffalo and to design it with expansion capability and that such a system would be both economical and energy efficient.
