Lake-source thermal district networks can save energy and emission for heating and cooling buildings. However, where and to what degree such systems could be an effective solution is unclear. We simulated that covering 17% of the cooling demand and 7% of the combined heating and cooling demand near European lakes is economically feasible and does not cause severe lake water temperature alterations in most cases.
