About Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Resilience Center
Waste heat contributes to the urban heat island effect and has been linked to overall warming. Heat pumps and heat recovery chillers can move heat to different locations to be applied to other uses instead of being vented directly onto the street.
The Essential Actions, Outputs, and Outcomes below include the core elements of the more comprehensive approach described throughout the rest of the module. We know that time, resources, and capacity can limit the breadth and depth of interventions you undertake. Simply beginning to explore these modules and consider what solutions are appropriate for your context is a critical step toward building your jurisdiction’s heat resilience.
