Sustainability at James Cook University

James Cook University is running a "Sustainability at JCU" marketing campaign. I had assumed this would be just about their life sciences courses, but there is also mention of their
Campus District Cooling (CDC) System. This is a system distributes chilled water around the JCU Douglas Campus, using insulated pipes. A central chiller plant cools the water overnight and stores it for the next day in a 12.5 Mlitre insulated tank. The Canberra Data Centres uses a similar system for colling computer racks, but with a much smaller water tank.
