Strategic Heating and Cooling Planning — Digital tools for unlocking thermal potentials
The third session of the Act!onHeat Training Programme will go into further details about the use of digital tools as an essential instrument for accelerating and improving the process of strategic H&C planning. Participants of the session will be introduced to the user-friendly, open-source online software THERMOS, which enables address-level heat network planning. The complementary elements of the two digital tools will be outlined for a faster, more efficient, and more cost effective implementation of thermal projects. The launch of the Integrated Hotmaps and THERMOS User Guide will empower actors to feel comfortable in using both tools beyond this training programme.
