This paper introduces the studies and experience learned in district cooling project development in developed countries and adaptation process in India for city-level rapid assessment. There are five pilot Indian cities chosen to go through all the process of rapid assessment so as to outline the barriers, challenges, and potential to develop high energy-efficient district cooling system. The paper also instructs the tech-eco analysis tools for rapid assessment, which is developed by the UNEP District Energy in Cities Initiative and adapted in India. According to the results, the economic and technical boundaries of implementing district cooling systems are outlined.
