Act!onHeat Training Programme 2023: Session 2 Webinar
The second out of three online sessions of the 2023 Act!onHeat Training Programme focused on creating technical zones and scenarios with the online tools Hotmaps and Thermos. Via Hotmaps, it was shown that 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 excercise was 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 were presented on. We also had an expert on solar energy for district heating reflecting on this specific potential.
Certification can be offered on demand. This requires attending the sessions and completing a short exercise with the Hotmaps tool.
