Strategic Heating and Cooling Planning — Data as a key driver in your decision-making process

Thermos and Hotmaps are featured in a workshop

The second session of the Act!onHeat Training Programme will focus on different approaches of effective data gathering from national and local sources in order to create a robust heat inventory for strategic H&C planning and decision-making processes. Furthermore, the session will showcase the use of the open access online tool called Hotmaps for identifying heating and cooling demands and availability of renewable energy sources and excess heat potentials anywhere across the EU.
