The next season of the Act!onHeat Training programme begins in February 2023
The new season of the EU-funded Act!onHeat Training Programme will launch in February 2023. The programme is dedicated for staff from energy agencies, regional and local governments, and experts interested in the process of strategic heating and cooling (H&C) planning. It explores the use of digital tools as accelerating instruments for a faster, more efficient, and more cost effective means to develop and implement thermal projects. The programme is free and builds on the well established, open access software Hotmaps and THERMOS. This season of the programme will focus on how zoning and scenario creation leads to the development of a successful H&C transition strategy.
- Session 1: Facing the Energy Emergency in Europe. The first out of three online sessions of the Act!onHeat Training Programme will focus on the current energy crisis in Europe and how heating planning in municipalities will play a key role in overcoming this emergency. (1 Feb 2023 // 10:00-11:00 CET)
- Session 2: Creating Technical Scenarios with Free Software Hotmaps. The second session of the Act!onHeat Training Programme will first introduce the free online tool Hotmaps and the basic functionalities of THERMOS. (1 March 2023 // 10:00-11:00 CET)
- Session 3: Building a H&C transition strategy in your city.
