Free training programme for heating & cooling planning is launched
The EU-funded Act!onHeat project is rolling out a dedicated Training Programme for staff from energy agencies, regional and local governments, and experts interested in the process of strategic heating and cooling (H&C) planning, while using 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 the first steps within the overall workflow of strategic H&C planning:
- Session 1 - From vision to engagement: taking place 25 February at 10:00 CET. We will explore the vision and stakeholder engagement strategies in H&C planning and showcase success factors and selected good practises. (learn more)
- Session 2 - Data as a key driver in your decision-making process: taking place 17 March at 10:00 CET. We will explore different approaches of data acquisition for creating a heat inventory and analysing the renewable and excess heat potential of a given area. The Hotmaps tool will be showcased. (learn more)
- Session 3 - Digital tools for unlocking thermal potentials: taking place 6 April at 10:00 CET. We 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. THERMOS will be showcased and an integrated user guide will be launched. (learn more)
All sessions are organised by the European Secretariat of ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability, with contributions from leading thermal experts across Europe namely from Fraunhofer ISI, CREARA, CSE, TU Vienna and e-THINK.
