Creating Technical Zones and Scenarios with Online Tools
The second session of the Act!onHeat Training Programme will first introduce the free online tool Hotmaps for zoning and scenario creation. Zoning defines sub-areas within a given city, region, etc. with special characteristics, for example those locations suitable for installing solar thermal energy capacities. The outcome of this exercise is a set of technical scenarios that can then be used to develop a heating and cooling transition strategy. Meanwhile, THERMOS is another free online tool which can help in the further refinement of district heating and cooling planning. The basic functionalities of the tool will be presented in this webinar. We will also have an expert on solar energy for district heating reflecting on this specific potential.
