Within each country's national energy plan, municipal governments often have legal authority to site industrial facilities and mandate the use of district heating. In general, European district heating systems have been developed in response to national or local energy plans or incorporated into plans adopted later. There are few district cooling systems in Europe. Some small systems supply cooling, but no citywide systems now do. S. cities. In addition, Europeans are generally not as accustomed to air conditioning as Americans.

Designed in 1877 by Birdsill Holly, the Lockport system provided steam from a central boiler plant to a few nearby residences and other users. By 1890, district heating systems were being rapidly installed in numerous small cities and towns in upstate New York. They soon spread to other small cities in the United States, especially in northern industrial states. They also spread to large cities, such as Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Baltimore. Most of the early systems distributed steam produced from a reciprocating engine that was used primarily to generate electricity.
